Two opposing protests are underway in Grantham. Around 200 members of the English Defence League are demonstrating against plans to build an Islamic Cultural Centre in Grantham. They marched into town chanting various slogans and were quickly tunnelled by police to a cordoned off area.
Just metres away members of the Grantham Solidarity Network are saying extremist views are not welcome in their town. It is estimated around 250 police officers, some drafted in from other forces, are on duty. So far the protests are passing peacefully.
