Far Right EDL Clash With Nottingham Police

ReportDigital YouTube Channel: EDL Clash With Notts Police

Saturday 5 December 2009: The English Defence League (EDL) arrived in Nottingham in their hundreds and immediately clashed with police as supporters tried to break free from police lines.

16 people were arrested during the protest and seven have now been charged with public order offences, one protestor was charged with assaulting a police officer.

The cost of the 700-strong policing operation of the EDL Nottingham demonstration looks set to reach £1m.

EDL supporters also continued their attacks on the press. One photographer was punched in the face. Every other working photographer at one point or another during the day was threatened.
