Violent clashes between far-right and far-left groups in Dover
Violence spilled onto the streets of Dover, England, as far-right and "anti-fascist" groups clashed over immigration protests.
One person suffered a broken arm, five others were injured and three were arrested during the demonstration.
More than 20 weapons were seized including a lock-knife, knuckle duster, poles adapted to cause harm, pieces of wood, glass, hammers and bricks.
The National Front, South East Alliance, North West Infidels and East Kent English Patriots were among the organisations involved in the anti-refugee protest on Saturday afternoon, reports the Telegraph.
Labour MP Dianne Abbott addressed large group of pro-immigration activists, including representatives from the Kent Anti-Racism Network, who had organised a counter-protest.
Footage from the scene show protesters with bloodied faces.
There were also reports of an altercation at Maidstone service station just before 11am, where coaches carrying pro-immigration protesters en route to Dover came under attack.
