Supporters gather as Tommy Robinson arrives at court

Tommy Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, arrived at the Old Bailey on Friday morning for the second of a two-day court hearing.

The former English Defence League leader will hear the judges' verdict in a new contempt of court charge on Friday afternoon.

The Court of Appeal quashed Robinson's 13-month contempt sentence in August 2018.

Attorney General Geoffrey Cox concluded there were 'strong grounds' to bring new proceedings against him and Lady Justice Sharp ruled on 14th May that the new case would go ahead.
