Norwich Protests: Three Charged

Three men arrested during the protest marches in Norwich on Saturday have been charged and another man cautioned.

Only four arrests were made during yesterday's event which saw thousands of extra people in the city, as the English Defence League and counter-protest group , We Are Norwich, marched on City Hall.

A large-scale policing operation saw the two protests pass off largely peacefully.

Three men arrested have since been charged to court:
