Men from Worcester Park and Croydon have appeared in court accused of being part of a brawl involving Tommy Robinson supporters outside a pub in central London.

Leon Brady, 47, of Worcester Park and Derek O'Connor, 60, of Croydon were among nine people who appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday charged with violent disorder.

The charges relate to a fight outside the Westminster Arms pub in Storey's Gate, near the Houses of Parliament, on July 14, 2018, the court heard.

A rally supporting Robinson and a counter-protest were held that day, which was also during the official visit of US President Donald Trump to the UK.

Prosecutor Robert Simpson said the men were part of the Free Tommy Robinson group and had met in central London before then clashing with an "opposing group" in a "large-scale disturbance" outside the pub.

All nine defendants gave no indication of plea.

The men spoke only to confirm their names and personal details during two short hearings at the court because they could not all fit in the dock at the same time.

The panel of magistrates declined jurisdiction and the men were released on unconditional bail to appear at Southwark Crown Court on February 5.
