SUPPORTERS of far-right activist Tommy Robinson blocked the fire exits of a library in a bid to confront an SNP MP during a constituency surgery, it has been claimed.

Stewart McDonald was escorted from Pollokshaws Library by police as the English Defence League co-founder filmed the incident on his phone.

The Glasgow South MP said Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, had arrived in a people carrier with a “small gang of men”.

They proceeded to cover “all exits from the building”, Mr McDonald said.

Among them was Daniel Thomas, 29, who has a conviction for attempted armed kidnapping.

Mr McDonald told The Times: “Shortly after I finished with two constituents Mr Robinson and a small gang of men appeared out of the same people carrier and proceeded to cover all exits from the building.

“I was informed that this was being broadcast live on Mr Robinson’s Facebook page.”

Police were earlier called to Kennishead community hall after Robinson appeared with his cameraman.

A source at Pollokshaws Library said they had been made to stay inside for more than an hour as a small crowd gathered outside.

They also claimed that Robinson's supporters bombarded the library with phone calls.

Meanwhile, police stationed outside told locals the library was "closed to the public".

Robinson, who was jailed last year for contempt of court, said he wanted to question Mr McDonald over "lies" he had told about him in the House of Commons.

In his Facebook video, he accuses Mr McDonald of hiding, and is heard saying “he’ll probably come out in a burka”.

It came after Mr McDonald raised a point of order in the Commons condemning Robinson as a "violent, racist thug and fraudster" after he was seen having lunch at Westminster.

He told MPs: "It's entirely correct that members of both Houses engage in robust, political debate around the parliamentary estate.

"But today we have learned that yesterday the violent, racist thug and fraudster known as Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, or Tommy Robinson, was invited on to the estate and wined and dined in the House of Lords yesterday.

"I understand that sometimes we have to engage in views that one might not agree with, but surely, surely the fact that a man who is as guilty as he is - on stirring up racial hatred, organising violent, thuggish crimes around the country, setting up the EDL and everything that comes with it - crosses a line.

"And such a person shouldn't be invited to walk amongst us on the parliamentary estate."
