Tommy Robinson sentenced to nine months behind bars.

The former leader of the English Defence League was found guilty of contempt of court and has been handed nine months behind bars.

Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is only expected to serve around ten weeks of the sentence.

That's because of a previous sentence for contempt of court- and expected good behaviour.

Robinson was found guilty after he filmed defendents of a trial outside Leeds Crown Court and broadcast the footage on Facebook.

It was viewed around 250,000 times.

In the video, Robinson approached a man who was not on trial.
