Two prominent anti-Muslim campaigners have been denied entry into the UK ahead of a conference held by Britain's newest and most active far-right group.
Martin Sellner, from Austria, and the Hungarian Abel Bodi were due to attend the private Generation Identity conference in London on Saturday. They were detained at Stansted airport – the second time in a month that Sellner, the leader of Generation Identity, has been prevented from entering the UK by border officials.
Sellner, 29, was also the ringleader behind a controversial "Defend Europe" campaign last summer, responsible for targeting boats attempting to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean.
Lauren Southern, a prominent Generation Identity activist who was refused entry to the UK at the border last month, confirmed the latest developments.
