Two policemen accused of giving false evidence about an English Defence League and Unite Against Fascism march in Bolton appeared in court today.

The Greater Manchester Police serving officers Inspector Robert Cantrell and Constable Alan Glover are on trial charged with perverting the course of justice.

The pair are suspected of giving untruthful evidence that led to the arrest of a man during the protest in March 2010.

The man was charged with a public order offence during the EDL and UAF’s march.

Both officers appeared in York Crown Court to give their names and dates of birth – they will appear again on September 17.
