Anti-Nato protesters have chained themselves inside Barclays bank in Newport this afternoon.

Police said the four protesters entered the branch in Commercial Street, Newport, at about 3.20pm.

Officers have yet to arrest the protesters said to be attached to barriers inside the branch.

Police are currently at the scene and have arrested a man outside the bank for a public order offence.

A Police spokesman said this evening: “Police were called to Commercial Street, Newport, shortly after 3.20pm today after four protesters entered Barclays Bank and attached themselves to barriers.

“The protesters have been served with a trespass notice and will be arrested in due course by officers who are currently at the scene.

“A man has been arrested outside the bank for a public order offence and taken into police custody.

“The vast majority of protesters have behaved peacefully during the Nato Summit and police hope people continue to exercise their democratic right in accordance with the law.”

The protestors are said to be calling for Barclays PLC to divest its shares from Elbit Systems.

One of them, Michelle Horton, said: "Elbit's drones are used to carry out horrific war crimes in Gaza. "We are here to stand in solidarity with people in Gaza and to persuade Barclays to get rid of their shares in Elbit."
