Vi­o­lent clashes at far right march

The Observer - - News - PROTEST Damien Gayle

A march by rightwing group the Demo­cratic Foot­ball Lads Al­liance in cen­tral Lon­don ended in vi­o­lence yes­ter­day. Hun­dreds of sup­port­ers were walk­ing from Park Lane to White­hall when some started to push through po­lice es­corts. Scores of of­fi­cers on horse­back and wear­ing riot gear tried to con­trol the swelling groups and po­lice vans were used to block them in. The march or­gan­is­ers had said they were protest­ing against “re­turn­ing ji­hadists”, “rape gangs and groomers”, and “vet­er­ans treated like traitors”.
