A BOISTEROUS demonstration by a far-right group over its views to “ban the burkha” passed off without any arrests – despite tensions running high at times.
Around 150 members of the North East English Defence League (EDL) group met at The Clarendon pub in Tower Street, on Saturday for a protest march through the town centre against the use of the Muslim burkha in Britain.
The singing, shouting, and chanting procession left Tower Street around 12.30pm and marched up Park Road, into York Road, and then Victoria Road, where they all planned to congregate in front of the war memorial in Victory Square.
