Video footage from today's EDL demo in Dudley has now been posted. As can be seen from the first instalment below, it would seem that demonstrators were initially penned in by metal fencing.
The subsequent two videos indicate that the main body of the EDL demonstration continued to be confined in this penned area. Numbers are lower than at previous demonstrations, but there were EDL Facebook reports claiming that some coaches full of supporters were being prevented from reaching their destination. As can be seen, there is no sign of violence in any of the videos posted here. However, that is not the case in a series of excellent photographs taken by Jonathan Walker. These feature both EDL supporters and local Muslim counter-demonstrators. As can be seen, there is one individual with the EDL crowd who deserves a stiff sentence for throwing a section of drainpipe at the police. Resident young Muslims can also be seen squaring up to the police. Such 'youths' are not a problem for Dudley alone however, for they went on the rampage in Grenoble on Friday and Saturday night.
