Around 70 skaters, BMXers and local young people protested in Stockton, Teesside, last Friday. They demand that the council builds the skate park it has promised them for over a year.

Young people have been threatened with Asbos and face frequent harassment by the police for congregating near a local supermarket and swimming baths. But protesters say they have nowhere else to go.
