The EDL headed to Telford after the town was named as the child sex capital of the UK, with the highest number of recorded crimes of that nature for any town or city in the country.

There were two brief flash points when counter protestors managed to get near to the EDL group and when police began issuing dispersal notices to a separate splinter group, calling themselves the Pie and Mash Squad, who were not part of the pre-planned demonstration.

There was also a counter, anti-EDL demonstration in Telford Town Park.
