English Defence League leader and founder Tommy Robinson has left the group, saying he has concerns over the "dangers of far-right extremism":

The EDL organises protests across the UK against "radical Islam".

His decision follows discussions with the Quilliam group, which describes itself as a "counter-extremism think tank".

He spoke exclusively to BBC Radio 5 live's Nicky Campbell - you can hear the full interview on Tuesday from 18:00.
