A violent group, closely aligned to the English Defence League has made direct threats to an Anarchist film festival due to take place in Leeds next month.

Casuals United, run by convicted football thug Jeff Marsh has vowed to disrupt the Leeds Anti Fascist Film Festival which will take place in the city in February.

Marsh from South Wales has been previously convicted of stabbing two Manchester United supporters in 1989 and was sentenced to two years in prison.

He is currently banned from every football ground in the country following a conviction for affray in 2010.

Members of Casuals United were widely believed to have been involved in violent scenes over the weekend when a number of their members travelled to the Whitechapel area of London with the intention of stirring up trouble with the local Asian residents.
