Two men have been arrested on suspicion of assault during an English Defence League march to Woolwich, in what they claimed to be a charity walk to Woolwich Barracks where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed last month.
The men are reportedly not from the group.

At approximately 11.25am today, two men were arrested outside Aldgate East station for obstructing police.
They have been taken to a south London police station. Two further men were arrested on suspicion of assault.
They have been taken to an east London police station.
