Scarborough EDL protest leads to three arrests

Three arrests were made at an English Defence League (EDL) march in North Yorkshire on Saturday.

Up to 150 EDL members marched through Scarborough town centre and about 70 counter-protesters from a range of groups gathered to oppose them.

North Yorkshire Police said two men, aged 21 and 54, and a 59-year-old woman were arrested for breach of the peace.

Supt Dave Hannan said despite the arrests those taking part on both sides were well behaved.
