Two men have been arrested after EDL members clashed with anti-jubilee protestors in a city centre flare-up.
Police launched an investigation after trouble broke out on Monday June 4 during a protest at the Monument, in Newcastle city centre, when firecrackers went off among a crowd of people. A teenage protestor suffered a slight injury and received hospital treatment before being discharged.
Now Anthony Crawford, 22, of Elmway, Chester-le-Street, has been charged with common assault and a public order offence. A 45-year-old man from South Tyneside was arrested on suspicion of affray and he has been bailed pending further enquiries.
