EDL founder Tommy Robinson on Mo Ansar TV documentary

The founder of the English Defence League (EDL) who made a TV documentary with prominent British Muslim Mo Ansar said he liked his counterpart but found he was "in denial".

Tommy Robinson said Mr Ansar wanted to be seen as a "defender of Muslims and defender of Islam", but that he should spend more time tackling problems in his own community.

The ex-EDL leader told Jo Coburn he had made mistakes with the EDL, but he was "on a journey".

The BBC documentary Quitting the English Defence League: When Tommy Met Mo ended with Mr Robinson's decision to leave the EDL.
