    Photos have emerged of a police officer’s face covered in blood after he was injured at demonstrations in Leeds which saw anti-fascists facing off against supporters of English Defence League (EDL) founder Tommy Robinson.

    West Yorkshire Police tweeted pictures of the officer who was hospitalized after being hit by a glass bottle during the fracas.

    The march was countered by more than twice as many people with some 750 supporters of the Leeds Anti-fascist Network marched out crying ‘Where is your Tommy gone?’. Police were deployed to prevent the two groups from clashing.

    Chief Superintendent Mabs Hussain, who was the commander of the operation, said the constable’s injury “is completely unacceptable” and is under investigation.
