    Tommy Robinson has been serving a second term in prison after being re-tried over filming and naming suspects in the Huddersfield child grooming case.

    Tommy Robinson's supporters are holding a rally in London to demand his release from prison.

    Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is a former English Defence League (EDL) leader, who was jailed for nine months for contempt of court.

    Several groups have announced that they will hold a counter-demonstration at the same time as the rally by Robinson's supporters.
