This follows plans by the English Defence League (EDL) to march in the town on August 13.
‘I have given my consent to a ban on marches in Telford this weekend. It is clear that a ban is needed to ensure communities and property are protected,’ said the Home Secretary.
‘What this ban does not do, however, is stop an EDL presence or a static demonstration in Telford this weekend.
‘West Mercia Police have a significant number of officers being deployed to police any EDL presence. I encourage all local people to work with the police to ensure community relations are not undermined.’
