Tommy Robinson supporters gather near Trafalgar Square in support of the former EDL leader
Supporters chant Tommy Robinson's name near Trafalgar Square after the former English Defence League leader was sentenced to 9 months in jail today (July 11). One man can be seen scaling a bus full of tourists as he films the crowd containing numerous fans of Tommy Robinson. The filmer told Newsflare: "[They] started chanting and getting louder. Almost like they'd won something. "I lost my friend and couldn't get through. [I'm] embarrassed about the tourists. That this is what they think Britain represents." Robinson has been sentenced to nine months in prison after being found guilty of contempt of court last week. The former EDL leader recorded a live broadcast during a reporting ban on a 2018 child grooming case at Leeds Crown Court.
