Pegida march & counter protests pass off peacefully

Video report by ITV News Central reporter Chris Halpin

Police say an anti-Islam protest and counter demonstrations in Birmingham today have passed off peacefully.

A silent march took place by a group called Pegida, which was first formed in Germany in 2013, but has now been set up in this country by the former leader of the English Defence League Tommy Robinson.

Anti-fascist demonstrations also took place in Birmingham to counter the views of the right wing group, and police say one man was arrested for a public order offence.
