Update following postponement of Full Council meeting on 19 July 2017

A Peterborough City Council spokeswoman said: "The decision to postpone last night's meeting of Full Council until next Wednesday (26th) was not one that we took lightly.

"It was imperative that we balanced the rights of people to protest with our obligation to make sure all members of the public, councillors and staff are safe, to ensure that the democratic procedures of the council can continue.

"This is what we must achieve for next week's meeting and we are in the process of exploring ways that this can happen, in consultation with the police.

"We will provide residents with an update as soon as we have a clear way forward."
