EDL to protest Britain's biggest water park 'for hosting Muslim-only days' - except it doesn't
The far-right English Defence League is planning to stage a protest outside Britain's biggest water park over what it has described as the hosting of "Muslim-only days" – despite no such event taking place.
The group objected to plans by Waterworld in Staffordshire to set aside two hours on the evening of Sunday 9 August for an event designed to be culturally sensitive to Muslim women who would otherwise not attend a water park.
The event, open to women of all religions as well as boys up to the age of four, was flagged up on the EDL's Facebook page and members have since inundated the park's social media pages with complaints.
