Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Rick Nugent says police will be bringing in extra resources to combat further protests planned in Melbourne.
“We’ve, again, brought in a lot of police resources from around Melbourne metropolitan and some regional areas to assist with our response today,” Deputy Commissioner Nugent told Sky News Australia.
He said the police force will be aiming to prevent the chaotic scenes which occurred on Tuesday.
“We’ll be ready early this morning to try and disrupt this protest and try and completely avoid a repeat of what we saw yesterday.
“We’ll be acting quite swiftly this morning to try and prevent that from occurring again.”
