    Scuffles broke out in southeastern British city of Dover ahead of the rallies by anti-fascist and far-right groups, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Far-right groups, such as the South East Alliance, the National Front, the North West Infidels and East Kent English Patriots organized a march in Dover protesting against the immigration to the United Kingdom and the influence of the European Union on the country. In response, anti-fascist from many UK cities arrived in Dover to hold their own counter-rally.

    The International Business Times news website reported that altercations erupted after far-right activists broke a windscreen of one of the transports used by their rivals to arrive in the city and drew a swastika on one of their vehicles.

    One man was reportedly injured and some 60 detained but the website admits that it could not verify the information.

    The website added that police reinforcements arrived in the city to "facilitate a peaceful protest."
