Kent Police deny working with EDL after far-right group posts it is “working alongside” force

Claims a group of far-right activists are “working alongside” Kent Police to patrol the county’s coast have been denied by the force. Members of the self-titled English Defence League’s Coastal Patrol group posted a message to supporters that “the lads are back on patrol”. They claim their role is working with Kent Police to protect Kent’s shores. In a post on the group’s Facebook page it wishes “luck to the lads on duty”. It was flagged up by a Twitter user to the police who replied: “We only work with partners such as the Border Force, Coastguard and RNLI when it comes to policing our coastline.” The League’s ‘coastal patrol’ has recently posted updates, videos and pictures of men being stationed on Dymchurch beach in a tent with “bacon sarnies”.
