It comes after a police investigation last month busted a massive child rape ring of 17 mainly British-Pakistani men and one woman.

They plied underage children with booze and drugs before the victims were passed around from one man to another for sex, the trial heard.

Those prosecuted were mostly British-born men of Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Indian, Iraqi, Iranian and Turkish heritage.

Yesterday the only woman convicted as part of Operation Sanctuary was revealed to have told cops that she felt “no sympathy” for the victims.

Carolann Gallon, 22, was given six years for trafficking for sexual exploitation after luring vulnerable girls to for her paedophile pals.

Roads were closed as around 70 EDL protesters took part in today’s march.

Flashpoints erupted between the thugs, police and anti-Fascist demonstrators who took part in a nearby counterprotest.

Newcastle Central MP Chi Onwurah, who addressed the anti-EDL crowd of around 600, said: “I’m here because I want to honour and pay tribute to the survivors of sexual abuse – the survivors of the horrific crimes perpetrated in Newcastle in the West End”, the Newcastle Chronicle reported.

“The survivors who have talked about the most intimate, horrendous details – things I wouldn’t want to say to anyone. They have had to say it day-after-day in open court.”
