Why didn’t the BBC Bristol news desk mention it was an anti-Islamic EDL march that turned violent in Bristol? If this was an Islamic march, Black people’s march or anti-capitalist protest that turned violent you can bet that would have been mentioned. What is going on BBC Bristol? I sure hope you are not biased in some way! You are supposed to be the impartial news, remember?
Redfield pub disorder leads to 16 arrests
Sixteen people were arrested after disruption at a pub in Bristol on Saturday.
Police said about 40 people had gathered at the St George’s Tavern in the Redfield area of the city following a march earlier in the day.
Two of the 16 were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and others over public order offences.
No one was seriously injured and there was no substantial damage to the pub, Avon and Somerset Police said.
Dep Ch Con Rob Beckley said: “Peaceful protest is acceptable but we won’t tolerate criminal or anti-social behaviour towards any members of our community.
“We had to take some positive action to put a stop to behaviour that was criminally offensive to others.”
