Police have seized several computers after receiving complaints about "inflammatory" posters and leaflets displayed during a Muslim festival.

The posters, displayed during the annual "March for Mohammed" in Burton upon Trent on 23 March, apparently contained anti-US remarks, police said.

Five addresses in the town were searched and literature also seized but no one was arrested, a spokesman added.
