Redbridge Trades Council, Redbridge and Epping Forest Together (Reft) and representatives from anti-fascist magazine Searchlight - some holding placards reading “Don’t be used by useless Ukip” - demonstrated at Olympic House on Clements Road between 12pm and 2pm this afternoon.

Ahead of the event, former Searchlight editor Gerry Gable said the small turnout was “a token presence to reflect our disdain for their divisive policies”.
