Man charged after Manchester protest

A man has been charged and 13 others given fixed penalty notices after a rally in Manchester against public spending cuts.

Up to 4,000 protesters gathered on Saturday but trouble erupted when several hundred later broke through police lines. Police made 20 arrests as a splinter group left the organised rally and marched to the city centre.

A 25-year-old man of no fixed abode was charged with using threatening words or behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress. He is due before Manchester City Magistrates' Court on March 1.
