The second post in our next little series which relates to a new book we are conducting research on. ‘On the 15th August 1977 a political meeting was held by the National Front at Boulton Road School in Ladywood in connection with a bi-election. Members of the Socialist Workers Party staged a protest demonstration. In the violence that followed fifty-eight of the four hundred West Midlands Police officers on duty were injured. One officer Sue Bailey was hailed as a hero as she protected an injured colleague from missiles as she turned herself into a human shield.’ We are looking for recollections from anyone who was present at this demonstration and also any policing recollections or photographs for the period 1974 to 1999.
