  • Jayda Fransen seen on her way into Belfast Magistrates' Court

Two leaders of a British far-right group that gained publicity when it was retweeted by U.S. President Donald Trump have been arrested for allegedly stirring up hatred.

"He has been taken to Musgrave PSNI Station for interview".

Officers made the arrest immediately after she had signed bail on charges of making a hate speech at a rally in the city this summer.

Paul Golding was detained at the city's magistrates court where Jayda Fransen faced charges of using "threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour" at the demonstration on August 6.

Police have confirmed that a 35-year-old man had been arrested by detectives investigating speeches at the Northern Ireland Against Terrorism Rally in August.

Britain First leader Paul Golding has been arrested in Belfast over a rally speech he made in the city in August.

"We were concerned that there would be further offences".

Fransen's lawyer said: "The idea that she be prevented from speaking, in my respectful submission, is completely disproportionate". The detective claimed that a "Free Speech for Jayda" rally was planned to take place in Belfast last weekend and was only postponed due to snow.

Prosecutors has also sought curbs on Ms Fransen's social media use but the judge expressed doubts over whether the court's jurisdiction extended that far. But the court was told police wanted to speak to her about comments posted on social media earlier this week during her time in Northern Ireland.

The 31-year-old from Anerley in south-east London, has been ordered not to go within 500 metres of demonstrations in Northern Ireland as part of her bail. Detectives then made the arrest after Fransen completed her formalities.
