Arrests after BNP meeting protest
Three arrests have been made after protesters turned up at a BNP meeting in Nottinghamshire.

As the event, attended by BNP leader Nick Griffin, got under way at the Parish Hall, in Newdigate Street, Kimberley, protesters began heckling.

The police, who were out in force, quickly sealed off the street, making the arrests for minor public order offences outside the hall.

The 60 protesters were from Eastwood and Kimberley Stop the BNP.

There were no reports of any casualties or damage.

Nearby resident Fran Smith said: "As I came down all I could see was a big police presence, I didn't really know what was going on until I got back down to the parish hall.

"As I walked past the hall there was obviously quite a large protest going on with billboards about the BNP meeting."

The police said there was no danger to the public.
