Clashes break out and arrests are made as anti-fascist protestors try to stop a far right National Front march in Grantham, Lincolnshire, UK. National Front supporters unfurled a Confederate flag to show their solidarity with the far groups of recent events in Charlottesville, America.

After the initial clashes, the National Front were allowed to march through the market town, hold a short rally in the town square and march back to the pub in the rain.
