EDL To March In Cambridge

Cambridgeshire Police has confirmed the far-right group The English Defence League has applied to march through Cambridge.

A police spokesperson said: "We have been approached by a member of the English Defence League to inform us of a protest in Cambridge on July 9th.

Plans are underway to ensure an appropriate police response on the day.

The force fully supports people's right to peaceful protest, as well as ensuring minimal disruption to the people of Cambridge."

The Cambridge branch of Unite Against Fascism has announced it will hold a counter-demonstration on the same day.

In December last year, around 1,000 officers from 18 forces were needed to police an English Defence League demonstration in Peterborough.

Eleven people were arrested during the march in Peterborough.
