Over 160 people were arrested for a variety of offences after the far-right group's march through central London yesterday.
Most of the arrests were for breaching the conditions police had set down for where the rally could take place, and included people from rival anti-racist and anti-fascist groups who were prohibited from coming in to contact with the EDL's route.
