Wellington English Defence League demo cost police £342,500 (UK)

The cost of policing rallies by the English Defence League (EDL) and their opponents in a Shropshire town last month was £342,500.

The home secretary had banned a planned EDL march in Wellington amid fears of disorder but about 400 people from opposing groups still went to the town.

More than 40 people were arrested as rival groups clashed on 13 August.

A report to West Mercia Police Authority said £300,000 was spent on bringing in officers from other forces.

The match between AFC Telford United and Luton Town, due to be held on the same day in Telford, was also postponed because of fears of trouble.

The report by Chief Constable David Shaw said three police officers were assaulted during the clashes but none were seriously hurt.

Swiss MPs vote for burqa ban

Swiss MPs have approved a far-right move to impose a ban on the burqa or other face coverings in some public places, including on public transport.

With 101 votes against 77, the lower chamber of the house approved the motion, which was titled "masks off!", on Wednsday.

The draft bill will still have to be examined by the upper chamber.

Put forward by Oskar Freysinger, a politician of the Swiss far-right SVP party, the motion requires "anyone addressing a federal, cantonal or communal authority exercising his or her functions, to present themselves with their faces uncovered."

Burqas would also be banned on public transport, while "authorities can ban or restrict access to public buildings to such individuals in order to guarantee the security of other users."

Explaining the motion, Freysinger noted that "at a time when insecurity is growing in our streets, more and more people are hiding their faces behind a balaclava, a mask or a burqa.

"This makes it impossible to identify these people, a fact that is particularly troublesome in case of violence or identity checks," he noted.

France was the first European Union country to impose a ban on the burqa in public places, while Belgium joined it some months later.

On September 16, the Dutch government also agreed to a ban on the full Islamic veil under a deal with the far-right party of the anti-immigration MP Geert Wilders.
