The English Defence League has marched through Boston town centre.

The EDL announced its plans for the demonstration last month saying it was ‘against rising immigration’ and for the Government to ‘invoke Article 50’ - which would trigger the UK’s official withdrawal from the European Union.

As the group made speeches, there were some verbal clashes with bystanders.

However, the event was heavily policed.

The pictures show both EDL protesters and those opposed to their message.

You can also watch a video from the demonstration.
