The group of 172 were held inside the Red Lion pub near the Cenotaph in Whitehall after detectives discovered intelligence that they planned to head to the London Stock Exchange occupation.

They were arrested shortly after the Armistice Day ceremony and taken to central London police stations in order to prevent a breach of the peace.

At the end you see them arresting an old man who collapses when they start to drag him. Tomorrow we'll probably hear that he died in custody.

Police have arrested more than 170 members of the English Defence League after reports of repeated threats to attack Occupy protesters camped outside St Paul's Cathedral on Armistice Day.

Scotland Yard said they believed a breach of the peace was about to take place after they got intelligence that the EDL were planning the Armistice Day attack. The law states officers can arrest if they believe the breach of the peace to be "imminent."
