Around two hundred English Defence League (EDL) supporters have attended a rally in Batley.
Hundreds of police officers from West Yorkshire and beyond were drafted into Batley for the demo by the right-wing group.
Traders were told that up to 700 police officers were put on standby to help prevent trouble.
The Yorkshire EDL Batley Division called a national demonstration in protest at what they say is the growing influence of Islam and English people "treated as second class citizens."
