Videos shared on social media showed Mr Robinson talking to police.

A man aged 43 from the West Midlands area, a man aged 47 from the North Wales area and a man aged 28 from the Bedfordshire area were arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

Mr Robinson, 37 and from the Bedfordshire area, was arrested on suspicion of assault and a public order offence.

Police this morning confirmed all four had now been released on bail.


There were a number of people in the area at the time and officers remain keen to hear from anyone who witnessed anything. Call police on 101 quoting log 184 of June 4.
