Far-right Britain First leader Paul Golding is arrested

Britain First leader Paul Golding claims he has been arrested by police in Northern Ireland while he attended the trial of colleague Jayda Fransen.

The leader of the far-right group Britain First was arrested in Northern Ireland on Thursday over speeches made at a Belfast rally.

Officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) took Golding into custody on Thursday in connection with a Britain First rally this summer.

She was arrested last month by the PSNI in south-east London, and faces two charges relating to behavior intended or likely to stir up hatred.

Britain First styles itself as a political party but has been condemned by campaigners as a far-right extremist group.

'I can indicate there will be not guilty pleas to both charges, ' he said.

"The detective I spoke to told me she is being flown to Belfast tonight to be interrogated".


The barrister added the evidence against his client relates to video footage.

It comes as the group gained its greatest publicity ever when it revealed Donald Trump had retweeted three of Ms Fransen's videos, endorsing her Islamophobic message to his 43.6 million followers.

As part of those conditions she is banned from being within 500 metres of a public demonstration or rally.

Fransen had been due to get a mid-afternoon flight back to London following her court appearance.

It is believed Ms Fransen has been re-arrested over social media posts she made from a peace wall in Belfast on Wednesday.

She has been taken to Belfast city centre police station for questioning.

"If there is an offence she will be arrested like everyone else...the idea that she be prevented from speaking in my respectful submission is completely disproportionate".
