Saturday 1 May 2010: Far right group the English Defence League (EDL) took to the streets again, this time in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Up to 1000 marched through the town in what was labelled a peaceful demonstration against militant Islam. But as with previous EDL protests, trouble soon flared between protestors and police. Riot squads and attack dogs were brought in to regain public order, as officers came under a hail of bottles, beer cans, coins, cigarette lighters and sticks.
12 people were arrested, eight for suspicion of carrying an offensive weapon. Richard Price, EDL organiser for the Birmingham division was one of those arrested.
A one minute video rush was released by APTN on Saturday night and is available from the library.
