Police Confirm Pig’s Head Was Brandished During Far Right Leeds Protest
The statement said: “A man was spotted wearing a latex pigs mask which did come off and may at some point have been thrown in the crowd during the protest.
“But at no point were protesters seen throwing animal parts of any kind.”
However, after evidence was published on Facebook and Youtube, the force has now released a new statement.
A spokesman said: “Having viewed subsequent footage of the demonstration and spoken directly with officers involved we can confirm there was a pig’s head found on the floor in the crowd which was quickly removed by officers and disposed of.
“This was in addition to the latex mask.”
