Men who 'threw eggs' at PM bailed
Tony Blair
Mr Blair spoke to 500 supporters at Oldham Civic Centre
Two men arrested by police after eggs were thrown at the prime minister during a rally in Greater Manchester have been bailed until 15 April.

They were arrested outside Oldham Civic Centre while Tony Blair was leaving the venue after speaking to 500 supporters.

The men allegedly shouted abuse and threw eggs at Mr Blair's car.

A member of Fathers 4 Justice said the protest was aimed at "Humpty Dumpty" legislation that kept fathers from their children.

Police said a 43-year-old man from Wythenshawe, Manchester, and a 46-year-old man from Wallasey, Merseyside, were arrested for public order offences.

They said no damage had been caused and there were no injuries.
