THE parents of murdered teenager Terry Gregory say they are not happy about a National Front demonstration against attacks on whites.

Nineteen-year-old Terry was stabbed to death outside the Albion pub, in Woolwich Church Street, Woolwich, following a row at a bus stop over an umbrella on December 28.

The far-right group, the National Front, has been accused of hijacking the tragedy after it held a demonstration against race attacks on whites at Woolwich Dockyard station on Sunday.

The former lifeguard's mum, Susan Gregory, said: "I told the police I didn't want anything to do with the demonstration. I was not happy about it."

Greenwich Council also condemned the demonstration.

Council leader Councillor Chris Roberts said: "This was a tiny group of extremists trying to make this tragic murder into something it wasn't. We should allow the family to grieve in peace without having their personal tragedy hijacked by extremists."

Police estimate 30 National Front members and up to 50 Anti-Nazi League protesters, who stood on the opposite side of the road, were at the demonstration. There was no violence.

National Front activists laid flowers opposite the Albion pub. There was also a minute's silence and a demonstration calling for the repatriation of non-whites.

Organiser Terry Blackham says more than 200 British whites have died at the hands of immigrants since 1919 and the demonstration was in response both to these deaths and the recent murder.

He said: "We are not there to know whether Terry Gregory's family supports the National Front or not.

"We're there to hold something our members feel strongly about."

Meanwhile, Terry's parents, Susan and Terry, of Hitchin Close, Charlton, are to hold a fundraising evening on Saturday to install a plaque in the street where their son was stabbed.

The event, which will include an auction, raffle and several sports competitions, will start at 6pm at The Albion.

Mr Gregory said: "It will be nice to have a lasting memorial so people do not forget Terry and what happened."
