Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE - KAREN BRIT­TON

APAIR of brothers hurled vile racist abuse at a su­per­mar- ket worker be­fore one of them threat­ened a shop­per with a knife.

Max­imil­lian New­combe, 20, and his younger brother To­bias, 18, tar­geted Kieron Ainsworth as he worked at the Tesco store on Hi­bel Road.

Max­imil­lian New­combe, of Lon­don Road, Mac­cles­field, told him to ‘shave his beard’ and ‘go blow some­thing up’.

The brothers, who were at the self-ser­vice check-out sec­tion, then turned on shop­per Cal­lum McKinstry who in­ter­vened when he wit­nessed the abuse.

To­bias New­combe, of Bryn­more Drive, made deroga­tory com­ments about Mr McKinstry’s part­ner, and had to be ‘dragged out’ by his brother after he went out of the shop and re­turned with a Stan­ley knife and threat­ened to stab Mr McKinstry.
