POLICE have revealed an update following the arrest of Tommy Robinson in Barrow last year.

The English Defence League founder was among four men arrested in the town following a report of assault on a man in Hollywood Park back in June 2020.

Officers said they were apprehended in the Douglas Street area of Walney.

Cumbria Police last told The Mail that investigations were ongoing into the incident but have now revealed that “no further action will be taken” and no charges have been brought to those being investigated.

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

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 also arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

No further arrests were made in relation to the alleged incident, police said at the time of the incident in June 2020.

Mr Robinson - whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon - was in Barrow in May 2020 to film a mass show of support following allegations of an Asian grooming gang operating in Barrow.

The following month he was in the areas again under similar circumstances and this intervention was labelled as unhelpful at the time by Barrow's MP as the rally Mr Robinson attended saw a viral social media post shared thousands of times got a groundswell of support.

Videos shared from the scene showed very little social distancing among the hundreds gathered which was condemned by many in the community.

Reacting the news that no further action has been taken in regard to the police investigation Simon Fell, MP for Barrow, said: "It's clear that Mr Yaxley-Lennon came here to stir up trouble and that's exactly what he did.

"I very much hope there won't be a next time or any future visits."

As part of his bail conditions last year, Cumbria Police said Mr Robinson had been issued a travel ban into the county.
