Muslim leaders at York Mosque invited members of the English Defence League in for talks after receiving threats in the wake of soldier Lee Rigby's death.
Demonstrators who had gathered to protest at the Islamic centre accepted the invitation to chat over a cup of tea and biscuits. Imam Abib Salik said they had a good response from both EDL members and members of the local community.
Two people have been charged with arson, with intent to endanger life, following a fire at the Mosque on Weelsby Road in Grimsby on Sunday. Both men will appear in court this morning.
Further details about a mosque that's to be built in the centre of Lincoln will be revealed by the city council next month.
Detailed drawings of what the mosque could look like, when it's built on this former dairy site on Boultham Park Road, will be revealed at a planning meeting on the seventh of November.
Outline planning permission for the site, which includes a supermarket and possibly housing, was formally agreed last year.
