Thousands of far-right protesters supporting jailed founder Tommy Robinson sparked chaos in central London.

Twelve were reportedly arrested as violence broke out in the crowds amid heavy police presence, with a union leader left covered in blood after he was attacked while speaking at a counter-protest.

A standout story from the rally was a woman in a headscarf who stayed remarkably calm as protestors blockaded her bus.

It doesn't stop there.

A foul-mouthed, misogynist and Islamophobic rant at a female journalist has now gone viral on Twitter.

The footage, shared by Al Jazeera journalist Sonia Gallego, shows a Tommy Robinson supporter confront her and demand to know who she works for.

The video shows him aggressively asking:

Are you with Tommy Robinson or against?

When Gallego explains that she's neutral as a journalist for Al Jazeera, he says.

You're Muslim backed then, aint ya?

You're Muslim-backed.

She asks him what he means, to which he responds:

Are you f***ing stupid? Are you thick?

He adds:

You know what? You're a slag.

Others shared their own shocking experiences and footage of the protests.
