To those allowed to leave the court he said: ‘You are on bail and must attend court, failure to do so will result in you being placed in custody’. 
Today’s hearing was split into three to deal with the number of defendants. 
Outside court there were protests including former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, who confronted many of the men and women.
More than 20 police were on duty outside.
The defendants, who are mainly from Huddersfield but also include men from Dudley, Sheffield, Bradford, Manchester, and Dewsbury, appeared in groups of up to ten during a lengthy court sitting on Wednesday.
