Newcastle protest LIVE: ‘Kill the Bill’ activists gather in the city center for a rally

‘Kill the Bill’ protesters gather in Newcastle city center this weekend for a day of action against the government’s controversial new crime bill.

Protesters will gather at Grey’s Monument on Saturday January 15 to respond to plans to push forward new laws that would give police in England and Wales more power to impose conditions on non-violent protests, including those considered too noisy or annoying.

The static rally, starting at 12pm, will show resistance before the House of Lords has its final vote on the bill on Monday.

Our reporter, Katie Anderson, will be on hand to provide us with all the latest updates from the event.
