According to the Daily Telegraph website an EDL supporter has been arrested in relation to the murders of PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone.

The Telegraph claims that Stephen Garvey, 28, was arrested on Wednesday for conspiracy to murder the female police officers and is being questioned over making the hoax phone call which lured the women to their deaths.

Garvey, a Manchester City fan, lives on the Hattersley estate in Mottram, Greater Manchester, and lists himself as a fan of the English Defence League, the right-wing organisation, on his Facebook page.
