Activist and independent journalist Tommy Robinson has reportedly been jailed after a large police team detained him outside Leeds Crown Court, where he was reporting on yet another child grooming gang trial.
Robinson, who founded the English Defence League street protest movement but later renounced it to join the Quilliam counter-extremism organisation, was at the court to report on ten men accused of offences including child rape, trafficking, and supply of class A drugs to children, according to Caolan Robertson.
A video posted by Caolan shows Robinson being taken away by three police officers, apparently on suspicion of inciting a breach of the peace.
UPDATE 1545 BST: Robertson now claims that Robinson has been brought before a judge, who activated a 13-month suspended sentence for contempt of court which was handed to Robinson for previous reporting on another grooming gang trial.
Charges include child rape, trafficking & supply of class A drugs to children.
