FIVE people were arrested when the far-right Britain First group marched through the multi-ethnic town of Dewsbury in West Yorkshire on Saturday.

About 100 Britain First supporters marched from the town’s railway station to the town hall, surrounded by police.

A counterdemonstration supported by 100 to 150 mainly local people united the town’s ethnic communities, with a large contingent of men, women and young people attending from Dewsbury’s Islamic community.

On Saturday counterdemonstrators held a rally at which one of the speakers, Dewsbury Labour MP Paula Sheriff, said: “I’m really disappointed that Britain First has come to our town. But we are tough and they won’t beat us. We’re a town that has got incredible diversity and we live in fantastic harmony.”

The five arrested were all believed to be fascists.
