Two EDL leaders released on bail

Two English Defence League leaders arrested as they attempted to visit the spot where Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered have been released on bail.

EDL leader Tommy Robinson and his co-leader Kevin Carroll were detained by police on suspicion of obstructing officers outside Aldgate East station in east London yesterday as they attempted to stage what they claimed was a charity walk to Woolwich Barracks via the East London Mosque.

They were bailed last night to return to a police station in August together with another two men who were arrested on suspicion of assault.
