EDL leader calls for supporters to go to Woolwich (ITV/Twitter)
Tommy Robinson, leader of the English Defence League, has called for supporters to go to Woolwich after a man was believed to have been beheaded there by apparent Islamic terrorists.
Robinson sent a message to his EDL supporters through his Twitter account, which is run by his second in command.
It said: "Message from Tommy - Feet on the streets anyone want to go to Woolwich contact him/me, he will be there around 9pm."
The controversial anti-Muslim leader made a series of tweets regarding the attack, in which a man, believed to be a soldier, was killed with a meat cleaver and a machete.
"When the f**k is this country and its people going to take the threat political Islam poses seriously?"
The Muslim Council of Britain condemned the attack. It said the murder was horrific and urged the police to "calm tensions", saying that violence had nothing to do with the tenets of Islam More Here
English Defence League supporters have thrown missiles at police in Woolwich after a machete attack that left one man dead.
A group of between 75 and 100 men gathered at The Queen's Arms pub on Burrage Grove, where they sang nationalistic songs.
Sky News correspondent Alistair Bunkall, who is at the scene, said: "As soon as the EDL got into the town centre ... it became not only a lot harder for the police to try and contain anything, but also the aggression (increased) quite considerably.
"A few missiles have been thrown, glass bottles and the like. The police are trying to surround them and they've been charging them as well with batons."
