Up to a thousand supporters of the far-right English Defence League have been protesting over the murder of a British solider in London last week.
In a tense but largely peaceful demonstration supporters of the group rallied outside the prime minister’s Downing Street residence waving placards and shouting anti-Islamic obscenities.
David Cameron has been widely criticised in the media
for taking a holiday in Ibiza but government officials say he’s being kept fully informed about the investigation into Drummer Lee Rigby who was hacked to death.
In a bid to counter the right-wing rally, anti-fascist group Unite Against Racism held its own protest nearby but was heavily outnumbered by EDL demonstrators.
Police have arrested ten people over the killing of the soldier. The latest suspect was detained in Welling, south-east London over conspiracy to murder charges.
The main suspects Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale remain under armed guard in separate London hospitals.
