EDL protestors arrested

Police have arrested two men from the English Defence League protest site. Officers removed the two males from the disused factory in Hall Street following the EDL roof top protest at around 3.30pm this afternoon.

The demonstration started at 11pm last night, when four EDL protestors climbed on to the roof of the premise with banners, English flags and a PA system, to protest against plans for a new mosque. It is believed the EDL leader Tommy Robinson was one of the protestors on the roof.

The two men, who it is believed broke into the premises last night, are currently helping police with their inquiries.

EDL members began dispersing around 2pm, however police have reported small groups did cause nuisance around the town.
