Following his controversial appearance on the BBC 'Question Time' programme, a visit to Ross-on-Wye by leader of the BNP, Nick Griffin sparked a protest outside the Chase Hotel on Saturday. Word had quickly spread through the town that Mr. Griffin was holding a party fund raising event at the hotel and protesters tried to prevent vehicles from entering the grounds. Whilst we were there, the protest was largely peaceful and closely watched by the police, who ensured safe entry to those attending the event.

We spoke to some of the protesters about why there were there, and the strength of feeling against the policies adopted by this controversial party. The visit caused such a stir that Conservative candidate, Jesse Norman and Labour candidate, Philippa Roberts visited the scene to give their views.

You can see what happened by watching the WNTV coverage below.
