Far-right activist Tommy Robinson has been bailed after winning an appeal against a contempt of court finding.
Robinson, 35, admitted the charge and received a 13-month jail term in May over footage he filmed outside Leeds Crown Court during a trial.
At the Court of Appeal, Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett ruled there had been technical flaws by the judge who jailed him and quashed the finding.
Robinson's solicitors said everyone has the "right to a fair hearing".
Robinson, from Luton, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley Lennon, was not present for the ruling in London and is expected to be released from prison later.
In his written judgement, Lord Burnett said: "We are satisfied that the finding of contempt made in Leeds following a fundamentally flawed process, in what we recognise were difficult and unusual circumstances, cannot stand.
"We will direct that the matter be reheard before a different judge."

Read the headline and thought yeah - it's always the most overtly homophobic ones that have something to hide.

Trouble is Boncey he's been built up as some kind of modern day martyr, which is very dangerous.

Considering he had been warned previously about his conduct I would think there is a strong likelihood he will still get found guilty in the retrial. whatever opinion he holds it isn't appropriate to voice it outside a law court where a trial is ongoing and no defendant has yet to be found guilty. He'd have been better off waiting until the jury came to a decision instead.

This was from the Court today.
The original judge seems to have had disregard for the law!,,

He was on the radio yet again today. Getting pretty sick of the little prick.
There he is, standing proudly with our troops.
He's a convicted mortgage fraudster for God's sake.
