Two opposing protests were held in Monkton, Ayrshire on Sunday, where anti-refugee Scottish Defence League (SDL) supporters met members of the Scottish left. Tensions were high as the left-wingers rallied to welcome refugees while SDL supporters were protesting against the housing of refugees at a local hostel. The police had to divide the rival demonstrators, who exchanged angry words and threats of violence. They also closed off one of the main roads in to the town.
