Six men have admitted causing disorder at a far-right demonstration at the site of a new mosque in Sunderland.
Around 200 people attended the pre-planned demonstration on St Mark's Road in Millfield on Saturday, October 6 2012, where a former council transport depot is being converted into a mosque for up to 150 Pakistani Muslims.
The English Defence League, Scottish Defence League and Sunderland Anti-Fascist Coalition were among the protesters. A group of Muslims and locals also attended in a counter-demo.
