Stephen Yaxley-Lennon is known as Tommy Robinson.

During the 2018 case at Leeds Crown Court, reporting restrictions had been put in place postponing the publication of any details until the end of a series of linked trials involving 29 defendants.

However, Robinson, 36, from Luton, broadcast footage from outside the court on 25 May 2018, while the jury in the second trial of the series was considering its verdict.

The video lasted an hour-and-a-half and was viewed online 250,000 times, after being live-streamed on Facebook.

In a written ruling, Dame Victoria Sharp said Robinson had claimed his intention in making the broadcast was to "denounce the media" for their behaviour.

But the judges found he had encouraged others "to harass a defendant by finding him, knocking on his door, following him, and watching him".

This created "a real risk that the course of justice would be seriously impeded", she said.
