Appeal court quashes finding of contempt against English Defence League founder
Tommy Robinson, the founder of the English Defence League, has been freed from prison after the court of appeal ordered that he should be retried on a contempt of court charge.

He had been held at Onley jail near Rugby after receiving a 13-month sentence for breaching reporting restrictions at Leeds and Canterbury crown courts.

At the court of appeal on Wednesday, the lord chief justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon, upheld the Canterbury ruling but said the ruling in Leeds was “flawed” and there should be a retrial.

  1. He should never have been locked up in the first place, especially under the circumstances in which he was.
