Scuffles broke out and bottles and firecrackers were thrown by members of the English Defence League as riot police, mounted police, and dogs turned out on the streets in large numbers to maintain control.

By early evening yesterday 16 people had been taken into custody for a variety of offences including affray, drunk and disorderly and assault on a police officer.

Later 44 people on a coach were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder, Scotland Yard said.
