Four men and a teenager have been arrested after people attending a Liverpool anti-fascism event were attacked.
Four men, aged 21, 24, 30 and 52 were detained after the North West Counter Terrorism Unit raided homes in Liverpool, Southport and Blackburn.
A 17-year-old boy is also being held.
Police said three members of an anti-fascist group were kicked and punched on 6 July by about 10 men from an extreme far-right group on Bold Street.
All five, arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit violent disorder, are being questioned following the morning raids, supported by Merseyside and Lancashire officers.
