A dispersal order has been served on the area around Rhyl’s war memorial amid fears it could be damaged.

North Wales Police has received information to suggest a gathering will take place at the garden of remembrance, West Parade, Rhyl – with the intention to vandalise it.

Therefore authority has been granted for a dispersal order to be effective for 12 hours today.

Inspector Sharn Harrison said: “In deciding whether to give this authorisation I have given particular regard to the rights of freedom of expression and freedom of assembly set out in articles 10 and 11 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights which are incorporated into the Human Rights Act 1998.

“The area will be specific to the war memorial – and a 100 metres out, in any direction, from its centre.”
