DTT comment: Great news! It is quite right that these thugs should feel the full force of the Law. There is no place in society for those who try intimidate and assault people.

A disabled English Defence League supporter involved in clashes with police while on crutches at a protest rally has been jailed for 16 months.

Lee Joshua, 43, was jailed alongside fellow EDL supporters Jake Hill, James Harrington and Adam Beebee, who were involved in violence in Birmingham in July 2013.

About 200 people were involved in the disturbance with police in the Broad Street and Centenary Square areas.

About 30 officers were injured.

The four men, who admitted violent disorder, were told by a judge at Birmingham Crown Court that the rally had been “plainly racist and/or anti-Muslim”.

Joshua had claimed to have “enjoyed every minute” of the disturbance, and later posted an image of himself on Facebook burning a copy of the Koran.
