Several hundred English Defence League protesters held a static protest in Bradford, after the Home Secretary banned any marches from taking place. Police made over a dozen arrests after the EDL clashed with police as they tried to break out of the protest area.

Rocks, bottles and smoke grenades were thrown at police by protesters, one of which hit an EDL protester, who received treatment from police medics.
