UK: Police asked university for list of attendees at fracking debate - Canterbury Christ Church University says it refused to hand over list, and Green party councillor criticises police request


"Asked why it had requested the list, the force said: “Kent police assesses the threat and risk for significant public events in the county to allow it to maintain public safety and appropriately allocate resources. Police attendance was not required during the meeting, but the Dover district chief inspector did attend the event as an interested stakeholder.”

They declined to explain why the inspector would be an “interested stakeholder”."
