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.
