Riot police surround EDL protest after violent clashes between far-right and anti-fascists

“I would like to reassure the community that we are absolutely committed to tackling those intent on committing crime, or disorder, and our aim is to facilitate a peaceful procession.

“Additional officers will be in the city centre tomorrow to police the event and they will be supported by officers from British Transport Police, Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire and North Wales.”

Last year 34 people were arrested during clashes between the EDL and other protesters.
