Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, has met with criticism and resistance during previous visits to the North West.

In Warrington, he had a milkshake thrown over him while campaigning in the street.

This week, the Light Foundation - a Muslim charity based in Preston - postponed their meeting with Robinson after announcing that he had not contacted them despite him agreeing to meet them publicly two weeks ago when he visited Blackpool.
