Hundreds of people turned out for the first Shia procession since Covid restrictions were lifted, reported.


The march began this afternoon (Sunday August 29) at the Shia Islamic Centre on Preston New Road, making its way down Addison Street and along Devonport Road.


It finished an hour later back at the Shia Islamic Centre. Roads were blocked in sections for set period of time so as not to cause significant traffic issues with volunteers from the community assisting police and traffic marshals.
