EDL founder Tommy Robinson has alleged he was "violently attacked by left wing extremists" outside a McDonald's in London.

The firebrand ex-leader of the English Defence League has tweeted about an alleged scrap he got into in the capital.

Robinson, who works as a reporter for Canadian right-wing news organisation The Rebel Media, said: "I’ve done more scrapping as a journalist than I did going football."

A video appears to show him being confronted by a gang near the fast food outlet.

It is not thought he was seriously hurt.

Caolan Robertson, a video producer, said Robinson was "being violently attacked in London by violent, left wing extremists".

The attackers have not been identified or what why they began fighting.

Robertson tweeted: "Camera woman thrown on the floor and kicked in the head. Cameraman attacked. Microphones & cameras smashed.

“Police everywhere."

Robinson, 35,  is the former leader of the English Defence League (EDL), a right-wing street protest movement.

The group – which he co-founded but left several years ago – are opposed to the spread of “militant Islam”.

He headed the group from 2009 until October 8, 2013 when he was persuaded to leave the organisation after speaking with anti-extremist think tank Quilliam.

Recently he was captured on film repeatedly punching a man in the head at Royal Ascot.
