EDL protester carrying drugs
A man arrested at Saturday’s English Defence League protest has pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis.
Brian Bristow (37) admitted the offence at Leicester Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Prosecutor Mark Williams said Bristow, of no fixed abode but formerly of Doncaster, was stopped at noon on Saturday.
Bristow, who appeared in court wearing a shirt bearing the logo “English Defence League. Doncaster Division”, had a rolled “spliff” on him and cannabis for another one.
Bristow was fined £100 – though his time in custody was accepted in lieu of payment – and ordered to pay £85 court costs
