REPRESENTATIVES from protest group No Nato Newport will be presenting a written message to a Government delegate at the fence surrounding the Celtic Manor tomorrow.

Anti-Nato campaigners will be meeting at the Cenotaph in Clarence Place at noon before marching towards the Celtic Manor down Chepstow Road.

A rolling road closure will be in place and additional officers will be in the area.

A Gwent Police spokesman said: “The protest group will gather at the cenotaph from noon tomorrow .They will walk along Chepstow Road and to an appropriate point at Celtic Manor. An agreed group of representative will be allowed to go forward and present their petition.”

Pippa Bartolotti, leader of Wales Green Party, wrote on Facebook that an agreement had been reached between protesters and Gwent Police to allow a group of protesters to be escorted to the fence line.

According to Ms Bartolotti, the agreement says: “A delegation will be escorted by police to the fence line of the Celtic Manor Resort, where a written message will be delivered to a Government delegate.

“The delegation will then be escorted by police to the fence line. The delegation will re-join the main group of protesters where it is appreciated that the delegation will address the protesters although this should be for an agreed period of time not exceeding 15 minutes.

“The delegation party will consist of 12 people and they will be escorted to secure locations. Their full details will need to be supplied to police by an agreed time/date for necessary security checks to be undertaken.”

Newport Bus services will be affected from 11am in the city. It is unknown when services will return to normal as disruption may be caused if protesters return to the city centre by the same route.
