Groups clash at EDL court protest in Luton

Members of the English Defence League (EDL) and opposing protesters have clashed in Luton town centre.

Trouble erupted after Kevin Carroll, 41, lost an appeal at Luton Crown Court against his conviction for hurling abuse at Muslims during a soldiers' homecoming parade.

Following the verdict, Carroll's supporters began chanting "EDL".

As police moved in to keep the two sides apart, missiles such as ashtrays and a restaurant knife were thrown.

Sally Chidzoy reports.
