Former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson is to face fresh contempt of court proceedings.

High Court judges ordered a new case be brought against him over allegations he could have prejudiced a jury involved in a criminal trial last year.

The 36-year-old, from Luton, was jailed for 13 months in May 2018 for filming and broadcasting footage of people involved in the trial.

But that finding was quashed in August after he won an appeal.

In a brief ruling at the Old Bailey, the judges said that the full case would go ahead on 4 and 5 July.
