Tommy Robinson had been sentenced to 13 months in jail for contempt of court – but has won his appeal. Court of Appeal orders Tommy Robinson to be freed on bail.
Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and two other judges in London quashed a finding of contempt made against Robinson at Leeds Crown Court in May when he was sentenced to 13 months in jail.
The judges ruled that the process that convicted Robinson was flawed, and he will be released pending a rehearing.
Tommy will be on bail and face a fresh hearing at the Old Bailey to decide whether he criminally risked defendants’ right to a fair trial.
Meanwhile, anti-fascist protester Paul Sillett exchanged chants with supporters of Robinson:
