A man has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer during a protest.
Disorder broke out between demonstrators from the Stoke-on-Trent Infidels - who had organised what they called an 'anti-grooming' rally - and counter-protesters NorSCARF.
Police say a 20-year-old spat and punched an officer shortly after the protest began.
Fireworks and bottles were also thrown.
The protest started at 4pm and was over by 6pm.
This was planned to be a peaceful protest but unfortunately tensions between the two sides escalated into disorder and objects were thrown.
Our officers were able to intervene and calm the situation and prevent any further clashes from taking place. Luckily, no-one was seriously injured.
Our main priority is keeping the public safe and while everyone has a right to protest, using violence and intimidation will not be tolerated and it will be stopped.
