Terri Oaks, who lives in Cambridge and attended the demonstration outside Parkside on Thursday night, said: “Cambridge residents are appalled that the Government has so little respect for the right to protest that they are arresting people across the country for even thinking about protesting at the royal wedding.
“The public is footing the £20 million bill for the wedding, but we are being denied the right to voice our opinions, just as the government has been suppressing our right to protest against the welfare cuts which are hitting the poorest the hardest.”
A spokesman from Cambridgeshire police said: “We arrested a 30-year-old man yesterday on behalf of Met Police. He was firstly taken to Parkside police station but the Met have since taken him down to London.”
A spokesman from Met Police said: “Officers arrested a man in Cambridgeshire yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to cause public nuisance and to prevent breach of peace. He remains in custody.”
