THREE of the borough's police officers were injured at a protest against a racist party being invited onto a publicly-funded channel.

An inspector, a sergeant and seven constables from Bromley police were drafted in to help police a 500-strong demonstration outside the BCC last Thursday after bosses at the corporation invited BNP leader Nick Griffin onto the panel show Question Time.

A sergeant and two constables, were left with injuries after being crushed against a barrier in White City, West London.

One of the PC's faces was also slashed after a stick was thrown.

A total of six people were arrested and bailed to early December.
