Protests to take place in Scarborough town centre

The English Defence League are to stage a protest through Scarborough town centre today. They will march in support of homeless veterans.

Police say a counter demonstration is expected to take place, organised by 'Unity' - a range of groups who are opposed to the presence of the EDL.

The demonstrations are due to take place between 11am and 4pm. Some disruption is expected in the town centre around Vernon Road, Aberdeen Walk and outside Brunswick Shopping Centre.

The campus, which is part of Coventry University, has already taken its first batch of students, with their new buildings expected to be ready by September 2016.

The current students and staff are based in designated teaching rooms in Scarborough Spa, with a Library and Learning Resource Centre at Woodend Creative until their new home is completed.
