Pro-Straw Demonstrator Arrested for Wearing Ski-Mask

A local newspaper is reporting that a man was arrested today for wearing a ski-mask. The man was making a demonstration in support of Jack Straw's comments regarding the Muslim veil, he was also collecting signatures for his petition.

He told the paper:

Some people were hostile to me and said they wouldn't talk to me dressed like that, which was the point I was trying to make. Then two female police officers arrived and told me I should demonstrate without my balaclava, they said if I carried on I would be arrested.
He refused and was duly arrested for causing a Breach of the Peace.
