Thousands of protestors have taken to the streets in the capital to show their support for Mr Robinson, who was jailed for contempt of court after live-streaming a video outside Leeds Crown Court last month.

A counter-protest organised by campaign groups Stand Up to Racism and Unite Against Fascisim has also been held in London.

Protestors marched from Trafalgar Square to Whitehall, where far-right Dutch MP Geert Wilders addressed the crowd.

They chanted slogans and waved banners before listening to speeches by Mr Wilders and Ukip MEP Gerard Batten.

Photos show police and protestors clashing in violent scenes, with scuffles breaking out by metal barriers.

Other photos show police using batons in an attempt to bring crowds under control.

A Met Police spokeswoman was unable to confirm whether any arrests had been made at the rally.
