Tommy Robinson

Activist Robinson bailed after Barrow arrest

In case you missed it:

The former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson and three other men who were arrested at the end of last week in Barrow were released on bail on Saturday.

The four were taken into custody after police had reports of an assault and a public order incident at Hollywood Park in the town, where a protest rally was taking place.

Cumbria police said they were still keen to hear from witnesses who were at the scene.

The former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson has been arrested in Barrow on suspicion of assault.

Mr Robinson, 37, was detained after police say they received a report of an assault on a man at Hollywood Retail Park in Barrow, shortly after 20:30 last night.

He is also being questioned in custody on suspicion of a public order offence, along with a 43-year-old man from the West Midlands area, a 47-year-old man from North Wales and a 28-year-old man from Bedfordshire.

Footage shared on social media shows Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, filming himself and then police officers who arrive at an address in the town.

MP and council attack right-wing campaigner's Barrow visit

A visit to Barrow by the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, where he attended a protest about the way police investigated allegations of sexual grooming in the town, has been condemned by the local council and the town's MP.

Last week Cumbria Police said a one-year investigation had failed to find evidence of a grooming gang in the town, but a petition calling for the National Crime Agency and the policing watchdog, the Independent Office for Police Conduct, to investigate the Cumbrian inquiry has now attracted more than 18,000 signatures.

Mr Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, attended a rally at the town's Hollywood Park retail development.

A statement from the Labour group of Barrow Borough Council said his actions were "deplorable", and accused him of trying to whip up trouble.
