Following the murder of soldier Lee Rigby the UK has seen increased attacks on Muslims. There has also be a surge in support for the English Defence League (EDL).
Support on the main EDL Facebook page rose from 22,000 before the Woolwich murder and currently stands at 133,000.
Recent EDL demonstrations have also seen numbers increase. On 25 Saturday May several thousand marched through Newcastle, clashing with police and anti-fascists. Aggression against journalists was very prevalent that day with four reported attacks, including one photographer being repeatedly punched n the face.
