EDL Leeds march sees four arrests

Four arrests were made during a march by members of the English Defence League (EDL) in Leeds on Saturday.

The march was in protest at plans to create a Muslim community centre in the Moortown area of the city.

Police said the march and a counter-protest by members of Unite against Fascism was "relatively peaceful".

Officers said the arrests were for drunk and disorderly behaviour and minor public order offences.

The march comes a week after after six men pleaded guilty to a failed plot to blow up a similar demonstration by the EDL in Dewsbury last year.
