Former leader of the English Defence League Tommy Robinson has had a court case against him dismissed.

It was announced last Thursday that the assault charges against Stephen Yaxley-Lennon - better known as Tommy Robinson - were being dropped and the case dismissed because of a lack of evidence.

33-year-old Yaxley-Lennon had been accused of assaulting another man at HMP Peterborough in July last year.

After the case against him was dismissed, Robinson thanked people for their support.
