It is alleged that Mr Corbyn arranged and facilitated, then participated in, a gathering of more than 30 people on Saturday, September 5. He is also accused of failing to wear a face covering in a required area.

Corbyn has been bailed to appear at Sheffield Magistrates' Court in November. 

A 44-year-old man from the Reading area who was arrested on suspicion of violent disorder at the gathering has been released on bail.

Saturday's protest led to significant disruption for shoppers and members of the public in the city centre, and four of our officers were assaulted and left with minor injuries.

In Sheffield, protestors at the rally held signs saying 'stop new normal' and 'freedom over fear'.

Others at the rally held signs saying 'don't let them muzzle you' as Piers Corbyn addressed the crowd.

Last Saturday, the meteorologist led more than 10,000 anti-lockdown protesters at the 'Unite for Freedom' rally in Trafalgar Square.

He was seen being hauled off by officers after the event and his Twitter account has since confirmed he was slapped with the colossal fine and 'held for ten hours.' 

He was among eight other offenders who were fined across the rest of England under new lockdown measures imposed last week which are designed to stop gatherings of more than 30 people.

The arrest of Mr Corbyn in Trafalgar Square was the third time the divisive anti-lockdown campaigner has been arrested since the pandemic started. He was carted out of Hyde Park by officers on May 16 and May 30.
