Three people were arrested outside the Old Bailey today as far-right protesters gathered ahead of the sentencing of the two men who murdered soldier Lee Rigby.

Dozens of demonstrators gathered outside the court building, waving Union flags and chanting.

A City of London Police spokesman said two men were arrested, one on suspicion of actual bodily harm and one for affray.

A woman was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.

The police spokesman said there was a "significant police presence" in the area.

The street has been closed in both directions outside the court.
