Tommy Robinson is understood to have been arrested during a protest in central London.
The far-right activist - real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon - was seen being detained by police at an event in Hyde Park on Sunday afternoon.
The maskless former English Defence League leader was filmed struggling in handcuffs as around 20 officers tried to clear a path to a police van through a shouting crowd.
In another video, the 37-year-old was shown visibly upset as he was being detained, shouting at officers “you’re breaking my arm” and “I haven’t done anything wrong”.
The Metropolitan Police said in a statement to LBC: “Officers were policing an assembly at speakers corner, Hyde Park on Sunday, 1 November.

I don't like Tommy Robinson.
The problem is that the police have sat by while there have been other demonstrations e.g. BLM. The police seem to be cherry picking demonstrations to break up. This leads to accusions of police favouritism, which is harmful for public confidence.

That's why people sailed across an ocean risking all kinds of dangers to get away from it back in the day. You can be arrested for trolling on social media there lol.

I really do wish the media would just stop reporting every thing this thug gets lifted, the guy down the road from get gets the boabies at his door every other week and it doesn't hit the national press. Giving Tommy publicity like this is just feeding him and his army of troll followers.
Just lift him and be done with it.
