He was given a 12-month community rehabilitation order and a three-year ban from attending football matches. He was also sentenced to 150 hours unpaid work, and ordered to pay £650 in costs.
  3. He was arrested after an EDL demonstration in Tower Hamlets for breach of bail conditions, as he had been banned from attending the demonstration.
