Twenty charged after Tommy Robinson rally disturbance in Limeside

Twenty people have been charged after violence erupted when Tommy Robinson visited Oldham for a rally last year. 

A large-scale protest ensued when far-right activist Robinson paid a visit to Limeside, while he was campaigning to represent the North West as an MEP.

Police cars were smashed, bricks were thrown and fireworks were launched into crowds during the event held by the English Defence League founder on Saturday, May 18, 2019. 

A 'counter demonstration' by a group named the Muslim Defence League also took place at the same time of the event.

Of the 20 people charged with violent disorder, 18 have been named - 15 of which are from Oldham - while the other two are 16-year-old boys so cannot be named for legal reasons.
