Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

 

The estimated cost of policing EDL marches and demonstrations in 2012/13 and 2013/14 to date is £3.6m.

 

£2.5m of this estimate is in relation to opportunity costs and £1.1m is in relation to additional costs in respect of overtime.

 

The £3.6m is funded from existing MPS budgets.
