Tommy Robinson has been freed from prison on bail after winning an appeal against a contempt of court conviction.
Judges from the Court of Appeal quashed the finding and original 13-month sentence, made in May, at Leeds Crown Court.
The former English Defence League leader, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was detained then for allegedly broadcasting on Facebook details of an ongoing trial subject to blanket reporting restrictions.
He was sentenced to 10 months for contempt of court and given a further three months for breaching the terms of a previous suspended sentence.
The Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and two other judges overturned that finding on Wednesday.
‘The process was flawed’: Judges’ deliver the verdict
They said after Mr Robinson deleted the video, there was not “sufficient urgency” to justify proceedings being taken against him.
There was also a “muddle over the nature of the contempt being considered” and “the process was flawed”, the judges added.
