Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

The Honda march and rally held today (30/03) in Swindon went off with no significant incidents. 

Hundreds of people took part in the ‘Save Honda Swindon’ event which progressed from the County Ground to Faringdon Road Park over Saturday lunchtime.  

Wiltshire Police, working with partners including the Unite union and Swindon Borough Council,  planned and had arrangements in place ensuring it passed off safely and peacefully.

Assistant Chief Constable Gavin Williams said:  "Today’s protest march was very amicable. 
"A rolling road block meant that main roads were reopened as soon as the march passed through ensuring that traffic was only inconvenienced for a minimum amount of time. 
"My officers who were in attendance along with marshals from other agencies were on hand to help anyone needing assistance - however, I am pleased to say that the event went off without incident. 
"Today has shown joined up partnership working at its best. 
"I would like to thank those who took part in the march for doing so peacefully and also thank the shoppers and those travelling in and around Swindon town centre as well as local businesses for their patience if their journey or day was disrupted in any way."
