Paul Golding was jailed for eight weeks after admitting the contempt of court charge

The former leader of Britain First has been jailed for breaching a court order telling him not to enter a mosque or encourage others to do so.

Paul Golding, who has stepped down as head of the group, admitted contempt of court and was jailed for eight weeks.

The injunction, which stopped him entering any mosque in England and Wales, was imposed in August.

But nine days later he drove four Britain First members to Cardiff’s Al-Manar Centre for a “mosque invasion”.

The injunction also banned him from encouraging others to enter a mosque.

Golding, 34, stayed outside and there was no violence but there was a verbal confrontation between his four colleagues and a mosque trustee.
