South Wales Police issue statement following Pride Cymru event

South Wales Police worked closely with the local authority and Pride Cymru to facilitate a march through Cardiff City Centre on Saturday, 27 August.

During the event, officers were required to engage with a small protest group who had assembled themselves on the route to block the procession.

To ensure no further disruption to the event, officers asked the group to move to an alternative location nearby which they agreed to do.

Officers explained why they needed to move, provided guidance about protesting lawfully and offered to facilitate a lawful protest.

The group was cooperative and left the area shortly after.

Contrary to some social media reports, nobody was arrested or forcibly moved by officers.
