Police intervened and pushed back supporters of former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson as they attacked BBC reporters on London's College Green after the far-right figure was sentenced to nine months in prison for contempt of court on Thursday.
Police later arrested a Robinson supporter in front of Westminster Abbey as others booed and taunted the officers, with the City of London... Еще police reportedly making four arrests in total.
Chants of «shame on you», «scum» and «we want our country back» were belted out by Robinson's supporters.
In May 2018 Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in prison after live-streaming footage outside court of defendants in a criminal trial. The court of appeal then overturned the ruling freeing Robinson after only two months in prison.
The case was then referred to the attorney general, who stated that it was in the public interest to bring fresh proceedings. Robinson says the case against him is politically motivated.
