Supporters of Tommy Robinson clash with police in London

Supporters of Tommy Robinson have clashed with police at a Whitehall demonstration after hearing Dutch far-right MP Geert Wilders call for the English Defence League founder to be freed.

Rows of riot police blocked the gate down the Mall leading to Buckingham Palace where the Royal Family gathered on the balcony after celebrating Trooping the Colour just hours before.

Five arrests have been made and five officers were reportedly injured during the demonstration which saw some of Robinson’s supporters appear to throw bottles, metal barriers and traffic cones at police.

Wilders, 54, who was banned from Britain in 2009 only to get it overturned, has attended today’s protest after the EDL founder was jailed for 13 months.

Robinson pleaded guilty to contempt of court and breaching the terms of a suspended sentence he was handed last May for a similar offence.

His supporters have gathered in huge numbers at a series of protests outside Downing Street, Leeds Crown Court and even at British embassies in Europe.
