Arrests at march over sharia law

Police have made a small number of arrests as English nationalists marched against sharia law within the UK.

Scotland Yard said the protest in Westminster, central London, passed off without any major incident.

Marchers had their faces painted in the colours of the flag of St George and had banners bearing slogans such as "March for England" during the demonstration in Parliament Square and down Whitehall.

A Yard spokesman said "a couple" of arrests were made for alleged public order offences but no more details were available.
