'Why we threw eggs at the BNP'


The BNP leader and newly-elected MEP Nick Griffin has been pelted with eggs by anti-fascist campaigners.

He abandoned a planned news conference, saying the attack by protestors was 'a sad day for democracy'.

The protest was arranged Sarah Kavanagh on behalf of the "Unite Against Fascism" group.

She spoke to Eddie Mair on BBC Radio 4's PM about the protest.
