EDL seen moving down Whitehall

This footage shows English Defence League (EDL) supporters marching down Whitehall in central London towards Downing Street.

Sections of the protesters are seen gathering at a barrier to shout angrily at media and anti-fascist demonstrators gathered on the other side of the street.

ITV News reporter Ben Chapman, who is at the scene, said the protest is loud and and at times aggressive but largely peaceful.

He said there was a small number of bottles thrown and and some runs at police lines but the authorities had the situation under control.
