A police force has raised the Gipsy Roma Travelling flag - sparking hundreds of complaints from the public

Kent Police announced it was marking Gipsy Roma Traveller History Month and put out a picture of three members of staff with the colourful banner.

But the social media post prompted over a thousand responses, with most of them negative.

Kent has had to deal with a large number of illegal traveller sites in the past. 

Kent Police posted the flag on social media but received a hostile response from hundreds of users

One web user accused the force of being ‘out of touch', while others declared they should leave ‘left wing woke politics' behind.
