A BRISTOL woman has been charged after an incident at Saturday's yellow vest protest.

Nicole Shall, 29, of Harcourt Road, Bristol, has been charged with criminal damage and a Section 4 public order offence.

It followed allegations that a mobile phone had been damaged during the protest.

The woman has been released on police bail and is due to attend Swindon Magistrates' Court in April.

Members of Swindon's so-called yellow vest movement met at Regent Circus on Saturday afternoon. Among their demands was Britain's immediate exit from the EU.

But the yellow vests were greeted by a counter-demonstration boasting almost twice their number.

On the whole, the march had passed without incident, Supt Adrian Burt said: “The protest march was very peaceful with approximately 50 yellow vest protestors and 80-90 counter-protestors. I would like to thank those who took part in the march for doing so peacefully and also thank shoppers and those travelling in and around Swindon town centre for their patience."
