Update: A video from the Newcastle demo may be viewed here.
It’s a large crowd scene, peaceful and calm. Looks like the weather is sunny, and warmer than it is here (55F/13C, cloudy).
An English Defence League demonstration is currently underway in Newcastle. This report just came in from an EDL source:
Newcastle is a massive success; everyone is buzzing that the numbers are 5,000+ in attendance. The EDL are back!
From the pics it looks like it has been very peaceful.
Three people were arrested on their way to the demo; there is no news so far on any arrests at the demo itself.
Great news on the turnout:
English Defence League — London Division
Tommy has a BBC Camera Crew with him today and the Police have confirmed to them that numbers are now 7,000. A big well done to everyone.
I can just imagine ‘nothing to do with Islam’ Dave pacing up and down at Downing Street!
