In response to the planned event, there are at least four police vans stationed around town alongside a number of other police vehicles.

The march was adevrtised i advance by a group calling itself the Pembrokeshire Patriots.

It’s name stems from the use of a Welsh barracks – similar to Folkestone’s Napier Barracks – to house people caught crossing the Channel.
