Tommy Robinson was seen in London today leading a group of "far-right thugs" who clashed with police in the name of "protecting the Cenotaph".

The counter-protestors gathered ahead of a pro-Palestine demonstration on Armistice Day.

Crowds of people bearing St George’s flags were seen walking along the Embankment and shouting "England till I die" shortly after 10 am.

Robinson - Stephen Yaxley-Lennon - previously said: "British men are mobilising for Saturday to be in London" to "show our Government and show our police and show Hamas and everyone sitting around the world saying ‘Britain has fallen’ that there is a resistance."

He earlier posted a video on social media and said: "Why I'll be in London this weekend and why you should too! #Cenotaph #NeverAgain". At the end of the six-minute clip, he added: "I'm going to be there reporting, for you, as a journalist to show what's going on that day, to document what they've allowed to happen over the last three weeks."

A huge crowd of people were seen waving St George's flags and chanting "England till I die" as they walked through the Embankment. Police tried to block them from reaching Whitehall but the thugs managed to barge their way past.

They could be heard shouting "let's have them" and officers got out their battons. The group appears to have reached Whitehall where the Cenotaph is situated. Many more are pushing through, shouting "forward".

"Distinct lack of poppies"

As the violent scenes were shared on X - formerly known as Twitter - users pointed out that the Stone Island-clad 'patriots' had a "distinct lack of poppies" amongst them.

"Distinct lack of poppies in the disrespectful Tommy Robinson gang. They won’t wear them because it represents armistice. Armistice means a peace, a truce." One user said.

Another reacting to the group fighting police said: "Distinct lack of poppies from these patriots".

Someone else commented: "Note the complexions, flag and distinct lack of poppies as they pay their respects to the dead innit".

Robinson could be seen wearing a poppy.
