Counter protesters confronted demonstrators who marched this afternoon in protest at a Muslim school opening in Portsmouth.

The two sides met outside the Jami mosque at Bradford Junction.

Police stood between rival factions as they met.

One of the counter demonstrators, Jenny Flintoft, said: ‘We should be able to live peacefully together.’
