Footage of Tommy Robinson getting arrested at a Hyde Park rally has emerged after the former English Defence League leader was taken away by police.
Demonstrators had gathered at Speakers’ Corner in solidarity with another activist, Hatun Tash, who claims to have been attacked after showing an image of the prophet Muhammad.
Robinson was arrested under the coronavirus regulations for holding or being involved in the holding of the event, pleading with officers as he was marched away that he “hadn’t done anything wrong”.
He also tells officers “you’re breaking my f***ing arm”, as they handcuff him. Police eventually lead him away and put him into a van, as crowds gather to watch the scene unfold.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman told Metro.co.uk: “Officers were policing an assembly at speakers corner, Hyde Park on Sunday, 1 November.
“At 2.44pm a man aged in his 30’s was arrested under the coronavirus regulations for holding or being involved in the holding of the event.
“He has been taken to police custody.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
