Lincoln prepares for hundreds of anti-Islam protestors

Urgent talks have been taking place this week as police, council officials and business leaders prepare for hundreds of protestors to descend on Lincoln city centre.

At 1pm on Saturday, members of the East Anglian Patriots will gather at Lincoln Central Station in St Mary’s Street. They will then be escorted 300 metres by police to City Square, where they stage a two-hour protest at plans to build a mosque in Boultham Park Road.

The group claims its mission is to show anger at the “increasing Islamic encroachment on our way of life”.
