Far-right MEP Janice Atkinson launched a spirited defence of Tommy Robinson on the floor of the European Parliament today.
The ex-Ukip politician claimed Mr Robinson was in danger because he had been moved to a prison with a "high Muslim population".
And she sparked anger by making her statement moments after the chamber had taken to their feet to mark the anniversary of the murder of Jo Cox.
Rumours of Mr Robinson's transfer have swirled around social media today, with some sources claiming he had been transferred to a prison with a 71% Muslim population.
But he hasn't.
