There have been two helicopters circling the city centre since about
11am this morning. Whirr Whirr Whirr. We had a little walk and the 200
or so EDL demonstrators have all been penned in by a circle of police
at City Square. Apparently there have only been 3 arrests so far for
minor disturbances. The atmosphere in Leeds at both protests when I was there felt
pretty sombre actually. The police presence is MASSIVE and officers have been
brought in from South, North and West Yorkshire. I hope there aren't
any burglaries going on elsewhere.

I saw some guys with St George's cross face masks on Wellington Street. They looked about 14. Certainly not old enough to vote.

Good to see you were there and it's amazing observing coppers in groups

yes, i think that's one of the reasons why the police almost outnumbered the protestors.. seemed to work too as there were only a few arrests.
