Piers Corbyn continued to rail against the ‘Covid con’ this morning as he arrived at his trial for allegedly breaching lockdown rules.

Speaking through a megaphone, he told around 20 supporters gathered outside Westminster Magistrate’s Court: ‘If we win, all the Covid convictions so far will be questioned.’

The former Labour leader’s brother unfurled a banner promoting anti-vaccine, anti-lockdown and 5G conspiracy theories, as dozens of police officers watched on.

Mr Corbyn is accused of breaching coronavirus restrictions during anti-lockdown protests in London‘s Hyde Park in May.

He denies the charges and is fighting the case with a defence maintaining freedom of expression.

He arrived at court this morning clutching a plastic bag, before hugging a supporter and addressing the small crowd.

He said: ‘Our basic slogan is “end the Covid con, save lives,” thank you,’ which prompted a a couple of people to clap.

The physicist has been a staunch opponent of the Government’s restrictions and has already been fined once for breaching rules.

He was also arrested last week by Avon and Somerset Police when he took part in the Stand Up Bristol demonstration.   

The force had repeatedly warned organisers that the event was not allowed and of the risks it presented of increasing the spread of Covid-19, it said.
