Robin Hood boarded up ahead of EDL city rallies

The Robin Hood statue has been boarded up ahead of Saturday’s protests in the city. The council say they blocked in the outlaw, outside the Castle, as a precaution against any damage.  A large number of people are expected to gather there for the English Defence League (EDL) protest, said a council spokesman. “It’s a statue that has been damaged before and there is the potential there with that amount of people gathering,” he said. “What we are hoping and expecting is a peaceful protest. It is just a precaution to ensure that the Robin Hood statue doesn’t get damaged.”
