Anti-fascists outnumbered Nazis in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, and Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, last Saturday.

Up to 150 anti-Nazis came out against the racist EDL in Scarborough. They formed a line across the shopping precinct in the town centre and drowned out the Nazis speeches with chanting. 

Meanwhile some 250 protesters stood up to fascist group Britain First in Burton.
