Lecture gatecrashed by EDL protesters

Have your say

Police were called to escort English Defence League protesters from a lecture after they interrupted the talk in Sheffield.

A group of about 10 people were escorted from The Showroom cinema in the city centre, where the talk entitled Defeating Fascism in European Elections was taking place, as they had been ‘verbally aggressive’ to people inside the venue.

A police spokesman said the group then dispersed from the area.
