At least 58 people were arrested after the police decided to extend by an hour the time allowed for the BNP protest, but asked anti-fascists to leave at 4pm. Previously the police asked for both demonstrations to end at 4pm, under section 14 of the Public Order Act. So some anti-fascists were arrested simply for refusing to leave. The protests were triggered by the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich the previous week.
