OFFICERS are ready to "minimise" disruption which may arise from Brexit protests, a police chief has said.

Pro-Brexit campaigners held a "go-slow" protest in Flintshire on Friday.

The action - which was one of several planned events across the UK - saw a convoy of cars move slowly up Aston Hill and then back down on Friday.

Organiser Ian Charlesworth, from Flintshire, said the ultimate aim was to "make sure come hell or high water that Britain leaves on March 29."

Chief Supt Nigel Harrison of North Wales Police said: “ We were able to facilitate a peaceful protest on Friday night in Deeside.

"One driver however was reported for driving offences.

"We are liaising with the organiser around future plans, which at this time are not confirmed.

"We continue to have contingency plans to seek to minimise disruption to the public which may result from protest during this period.”

However Mr Charlesworth has an event on Facebook for a further "go-slow" this week.

According to the page, it will take place on Friday between 4pm and 6pm.

It is expected to travel through Deeside on major roads past the Airbus factory and on to Chester city centre, using the ring road and out towards Christleton through the city.

The page states the convoy will then head towards the Sainsburys roundabout where it will join the A55 and head back towards North Wales.

Shotton resident Amy Price, 30, captured some of Friday's go-slow on video.

She told the Leader: "I wasn't affected as luckily I finished work at 6pm off the industrial estate.

"I found it really fascinating at how many people took part in it and the overall support the people who took part in it had.

"I haven't really got a opinion on it - let people do what they feel is right."

Leader readers took to Facebook to share their views on Friday's protest.

Brian Aylott posted: "Why take it out on Joe public commuters?

"Have a go at the politicians who caused all this."

Les Moulsdale said: "It’s not likely that they will inconvenience any members of parliament, is it?

"A cyber protest would be more effective."

Stuart Jones posted: "I hope the organiser realise[s] what effect this could have on commuters, plus emergency services responding to a call."

However some social media users were in support of the protest.

Mark Caroline Boulton posted: "Good on em," and Matt Johnson said: "Full support."

Ahead of Friday's go-slow, Mr Charlesworth said he has "no worries at all legally" because "you have a legal right in this country to peaceful protest".

"Generally police will facilitate these things but they draw the line when someone starts getting violent," he said.

"But we are peacefully protesting and trying to get our point across in a sensible and rational manner."

Mr Charlesworth said he is "not a fan" of the Prime Minister or any other MPs as they "don't care about the public", and said he wants the Government to honour the UK's "democratic decision" on Brexit.
