11 arrested during protest march

Eleven men were arrested by police during a march by a right-wing political group.

The arrests, for a variety of public order offences, were made during the march by members of the English Defence League (EDL) in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

Around 1,000 people took part in the EDL march - and another 200 in an opposition march staged by the Peterborough Trades Union Council.

Large numbers of police escorted EDL marchers to and from the city centre.
