Landlady bars BNP meeting

A pub advertised on a BNP website as a meeting place for individuals attending a party rally today says it has not given the group permission to use its premises.

The BNP posted instructions on its website for people who wanted to attend the rally, but who were not attached to any formal group or branch, to meet at the Station Arms pub in Meir. But pub managers say they knew nothing about it.

Licensee Patricia Towey and her husband Anthony said they had been to see the organisers of the BNP rally after learning that their pub was due to be used as a meeting place for activists.

Mr Towey said: "We have told them we are shutting the pub because we don't want them here. If they had informed us, we might have been able to come to some kind of arrangement."
