Tommy Robinson arrested for allegedly attacking Muslim in jail

Stephen Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson, 32, was arrested at his family home on suspicion of a racially aggravated common assault following an incident at HMP Peterborough in July.

He was in prison at the time after being recalled following a previous jail spell for mortgage fraud.

In his police interview tape, heard by the Daily Star Sunday, Lennon claims other lags were offered £500, a mobile phone and an ounce of Spice – a synthetic cannabis – to throw boiling water and sugar over him, so he acted in self-defence.
