Violent clashes at far right march
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”.
