Hundreds of extra police officers are on duty in Sheffield today to deal with a planned rally by members of the English Defence League.
Members are due to gather in Sheffield Lane Top.
A protest by members of the English Defence League will take place in Sheffield later.
It was originally planned in response to plans to turn a pub into a mosque, which has subsequently been dropped.
However, the group says the protest will go ahead as they believe there are still plans for a new mosque in the Firth Park area, which they oppose. It is understood several hundred people will take part. Anti-fascist protesters are also planning to be there.
