Man charged with murdering nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel

A 34-year-old man has been charged with murdering Olivia Pratt-Korbel five weeks after she was shot in the chest at her home in Liverpool.

Campaigners carrying large flags and banners and wearing Wales football bucket hats paraded through the city centre yesterday led by a samba band.

The rally was organised by All Under One Banner Cymru (AUOB) and Yes Cymru, which claim the UK Government in Westminster no longer has the best interests of Welsh people in mind.

A similar event held in Wrexham, North Wales, in July attracted around 8,000 supporters.

There were concerns about how campaigners would get to yesterday’s march given the effects of this weekend’s national rail strikes, but AUOB Cymru were still confident of a large turnout.

The head of YesCymru, Gwern Gwynfil, said he wanted the march to be a “loud and joyful celebration”.
