See here and here for details.

So far the laws used against anti-Scientology protesters include the Public Order Act 1986 (in London), the common law offence of “breach of the peace” (in Glasgow) and the Clean Neighbourhood and Environment Act 2005 (in Birmingham). And the Birmingham protesters were also told that if they used the word “cult” in their flyers or signs, they’d be arrested for religious hatred (i.e. under the Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006).
