Fireworks & Bottles Thrown

Matthew Collins - 25 05 13

Police have estimated 1,500 EDL in Newcastle, It is a long way short of the EDL’s guess at 5,000 but it is still one of their bigger demonstrations in recent months.

The EDL have started to attack journalists and photographers, what happened to freedom of speech ? We have seen several who have received injuries at the hands of the EDL.

Protestors have started to throw bottles & fireworks at the police in the Bigg Market area of the city.

So much for respecting law and order.
