Laura Hutton/Photocall Ireland File: A G8 Not Welcome protestor on 15 June

Outer fence line near G8 venue breached following protest

A G8 Not Welcome march took place this evening at 6pm. At 9pm, an outer fence line was breached.

THE PSNI SAID that an outer fence line a “significant distance” from the secure perimeter around the G8 venue was breached this evening.

A G8 Not Welcome march took place in Enniskillen this evening, with approximately 700 protesters travelling to the outer fence line of the summit location from 6pm.

Following speeches, they went a short distance back towards Enniskillen where they left in buses.

Police facilitated the march and said it passed off successfully.

Shortly after 9pm, a number of people breached an outer fence line and moved a short distance past it, “however there were no incidents and they have now left the area”, said the PSNI.

They added that this incident occurred a “significant distance” from the secure perimeter and fence line around the G8 venue, which remained “unbreached”.

There were no arrests.
