Tommy Robinson supporters have been sharing the following photograph, claiming that it shows crowds of people protesting for him to be released from prison.
The far-right former English Defence League leader was arrested for contempt of court earlier this month.
The photograph below was accompanied with the caption: ‘the whole of London calling for Tommy Robinson to be released.'
It’s not a pro-Tommy protest.
In fact, it’s not a protest at all.
The photo was taken by Martin Rickett, 13 years ago, and shows an aerial view of crowds attending Liverpool's Champions League parade through the city.
