Another far-right thug has been jailed for violent behaviour in Dover during clashes with anti-fascists.

Martin Edwards, 45, Bridgend, Wales, is the fifteenth person to have been sentenced following the chaotic scenes in town on January 30.

After fighting broke out, he was detained at 3.30pm when two police officers saw him pick up and throw an object at a group of opposition protesters.

Edwards was released on bail while detectives began to sift through hundreds of hours of footage of the disturbances.

Edwards pleaded guilty to one count of violent disorder and was sentenced at Canterbury Crown Court on Monday to 10 months imprisonment.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Hilary Bell said: “This is another great result for the investigation team and more importantly the people of Dover.

“Offenders like Martin Edwards caused a great deal of anger within the local community for their criminal actions, which were wholly unacceptable and will simply not be tolerated.”
