A man arrested after Tory peer Baroness Warsi was pelted with eggs during a visit to Luton has been bailed.

The shadow minister for community cohesion, named Britain's most powerful Muslim woman, was visiting the Bury Park area of the town on 30 November.

She was in the middle of a walkabout when she was attacked.

A local man, 24, arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and a public order offence, was released on bail with no charges at this stage, said police.

He is due to return to Luton Police station on Friday.
