Police prepare for Boris visit
The police presence is strong around the Telford International Centre as they wait for Boris Johnson and other cabinet members to arrive today to launch their manifesto. The story was broken by Telford Live before 1pm yesterday, beating all other news organisations.
The meeting is closed to the public, with a rush for tickets by party members late yesterday afternoon.
Police have been drafted in from across the region including Hereford & Ledbury.
A Facebook group has been set up by anti-Tory activists to organise a welcoming committe. At the time of writing, it is 16 going and 35 interested.
