EDL hold protest outside Legoland's head office

The Bournemouth English Defence League (EDL) group staged a 'flash' protest over plans to hire out Legoland to a Muslim foundation on March 9.

Members of the group rallied outside Merlin Entertainments' head offices in Poole, Dorset, yesterday.

The Windsor theme park is part of the entertainment group.

A comment posted on the Bournemouth EDL's Facebook page said members gave two speeches at the protest and handed out flyers.

It added: "We have asked them to cancel a Muslim only event organised by a well known terrorist supporter who wants Sharia to dominate the UK. We will be back AGAIN & AGAIN until they cancel the event."

Legoland announced the visit of the Muslim Research and Development Fund last week.

The organisation is led by Haitham al-Haddad, who was identified by the government last year as being one of Britain's top 25 hate preachers.

A spokesman from the Bournemouth EDL group said there will be bigger demonstrations planned outside the Merlin head office next week.
