Officers from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) Public Order branch continue to work with Barnet borough officers and their partners ahead of a proposed demonstration in the Golders Green area on July 5.
As part of that work, officers from Avon and Somerset police, together with officers from the MPS, this morning, Friday 26 June arrested a 22-year-old man at a residential address in Yeovil, Somerset on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.
He has been taken to a central London police station where he remains in custody.
Officers continue to assess all information and intelligence available in relation to the proposed demonstration and speak with the organizers to ensure they have an appropriate policing response in place.
Police said in a statement “we are aware of concerns in the local community about the negative impact this proposed demonstration may have on them and are working with residents to ensure that people can exercise their rights in a way that is lawful, while minimizing this impact”.
