Britain first leader and deputy leader both are in trouble over a speech they made in Northern Ireland.

Paul Golding, 35, was accused of using threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour during a speech he made in Belfast last summer.

His deputy, Jayda Fransen, 31, appeared in court on Thursday on hate charges related to remarks she made at the same Northern Ireland against Terrorism rally in the city in August.

After the legal proceedings she was rearrested over social media posts she made from a peace wall in Belfast on Wednesday.

Peace walls are used to separate Catholic and Protestant residents in areas where tension between the two communities can run high.

The message said it was shot in the staunchly unionist Shankill area of west Belfast. During the video post she criticised Islam.

She was later charged with threatening behaviour.

The court ordered her not to go within 500m of any demonstration or parade in Northern Ireland as part of her release on bail.

A detective told the court that a “Free Speech for Jayda” rally was planned to take place last weekend and was postponed because of snow.

“We have concerns there would be further offences and also concerns about public order,” the detective said.

Prosecutors has also sought curbs on Ms Fransen’s social media use but the judge expressed doubts over whether the court’s jurisdiction extended that far.

She took to Twitter within minutes of her release on bail and said it was a “nonsense charge”.

“I criticise Islam and now they want to send me to prison for two years,” she said.

If charged Ms Fransen could be sent to prison for a maximum of two years.

The trial continues, Fransen is due in court on 09 January
