Suffolk: County’s police head for troublespot

POLICE officers from Suffolk were today heading to Peterborough to join colleagues from other forces in the region as fears rose of trouble on the streets.

The extreme right-wing English Defence League is planning to hold a march through the multi-cultural city and local anti-Fascist groups, including Muslim groups, have vowed to oppose their views.

There are fears of clashes and police reinforcements from a wide area have been sent to the city in an attempt to ensure the streets remain as peaceful as possible.
