Tommy Robinson arrested again

FAR-RIGHT self-promoter Tommy Robinson was arrested today for “breach of the peace” after chasing down alleged child abusers outside a court.

The ex-EDL leader was detained outside Leeds Crown Court after confronting two defendants on their way in to face trial.

Police later released him from custody.

Along with his team of duds, Mr Robinson was filming for a live social media video.

The self-proclaimed defender of “free speech” was put in a police van and officers said he was being arrested for “incitement” and “breach of the peace.”

Video footage of the scene was posted online, in which he says to viewers: “I’m being arrested? I am being arrested. I’m ‘causing a breach of peace.’ I’m being arrested for breaching the peace. 

“You’ve all watched this. Can someone get me a solicitor?”

Clips have also been shared showing Mr Robinson walking near the alleged perpetrators and pushing for comment while filming them.

The defendants react by shouting aggressively before walking into the court.

Mr Robinson was arrested for contempt of court while filming outside Canterbury Crown Court last year, for which he received a suspended sentence, and for “incitement” after a protest in 2013.

He was also jailed for 18 months for mortgage fraud in 2014.
