TRIAL: Police claim ‘did NOT know who Tommy Robinson was’

by Avi Yemini

In a bizarre twist today in court, the police officer who moved Tommy Robinson and his children on from a pub has told a court he did not know who he was.

Mr Robinson was at a Cambridge pub after a football match in August 2016.

The 36-year-old claims he was “targeted because of his beliefs”.

His harassment claim against Cambridgeshire Police is being heard at Peterborough County Court.

Sgt Paul Street told the court “I didn’t know what he looked like, but I had heard the name.”

Mr Robinson said he had been with his three children, aged between five and nine, to watch Luton Town play Cambridge United in August 2016.

A dispersal order was used by officers, and Mr Robinson and his children were followed to the train station.

The entire incident was filmed by Mr Robinson and Police. Mr Robinson uploaded his footage online and submitted it as evidence to the court. Police claim to have deleted their footage 24 hours after the event.

The case continues.
