Homophobic 'vigilante' video appears online

Police investigating online footage showing self-styled vigilante Muslims patrolling the streets of Whitechapel have arrested and bailed two people.

Earlier footage show a group of men approaching people close to the east London Mosque demanding women to cover themselves up and telling men to pour away alcohol.

Mosque leaders condemned those behind the videos saying their actions were not in accordance with the Islamic faith.

In a subsequent video a man is told: "Get out of here you fag... Don't stay around here any more."
