The EDL apparently marched over false rumours an old pub in Sheffield was going to become a mosque.


The march took place between the deprived areas of Page Hall and Parson Cross. South Yorkshire Police drafted in 1,200 officers from 15 different forces in order to stop the risk of disorder as right-wing protesters gathered in the city.

The programme, which screens on Monday night, follows officers as they go about their work on the street and in the station last summer.
