According to one of my EDL contacts, a demonstration is in progress at the police station where the arrested EDL guys are “helping police with their enquiries”:
It looks like there is now a protest taking place at the police station in Wolverhampton, where the two EDL people from Dudley are being held. The crowd are calling for the release of the ‘Rooftop Two’ who are being held by police.
BILSTON STREET POLICE STATION
Wolverhampton WV1 3AA
0845 113 5000
It’s right in the middle of the town by the tram station, in walking distance from the train station too.
“Leon and Snowy” are the two EDL guys being held in custody. It looks like the word is out and people are descending on the place from all over.
I presume people will also be ringing the above number too. The police are having a bad few days.:)
Remember the news story that broke yesterday saying that the plans for the Dudley mosque had been scrapped? It turns out to have been a feint, as we all suspected. According to The Dudley News:
– – – – – – – – –
Judge Mr Justice Wyn Williams granted outline planning permission to Dudley Muslim Association’s plans to build the mosque and community and training centre on derelict land in Hall Street.
And the Express and Star:
Muslim group vows mosque will be built
The Dudley Muslim Association today said it would proceed with plans to build a new mosque on derelict land in Dudley unless the council comes up with a “viable” alternative.
Chairman Khurshid Ahmed was speaking after Dudley Council announced an agreement had been reached not to pursue controversial plans to build a mosque with 65ft minaret in Hall Street but instead redevelop the existing mosque in Castle Hill. Mr Ahmed said the DMA wanted to hear exactly what alternative the council was proposing before pulling out of Hall Street.
I’ll post updates as they come in.
