POLICE are braced for a far right rally set to take place in Wigan today, Saturday.

Demonstrations have been planned by the neo-Nazi group National Action and the National Front who will meet at 1pm in Market Place.

A counter protest has been planned by several trade union movements and anti-fascist groups in response.

A National Front leaflet viewed by the Evening Post states that the demonstration is “against immigration”.
