Three demonstrations planned against Legoland event

A 'long weekend' of demonstrations has been announced by a far-right group in response to Legoland's decision to hire out the park to a Muslim Foundation on Sunday, March 9.

A post on blog, Casuals United, said it plans to hold three demonstrations against the decision.

It reads: "We will be holding a long weekend of demonstrations, involving various groups on Friday 7th March at the Council offices in Maidenhead, on Saturday 8th March in Windsor and on Sunday 9th at Legoland. We have arranged transport and accommodation nearby for those who want to make a weekend of it.

Legoland announced earlier this month it would be privately hiring the park to the Muslim Research and Development Foundation on Sunday, March 9.

The organisation is led by Haitham al-Haddad, who was identified by the government last year as being one of Britain's top 25 hate preachers.

Protest groups, including the EDL, have announced they will stage a protest on the day of the foundation's visit.

A statement from police said they will facilitate a peaceful and lawful protest if it goes ahead.
