Race hate speech man to face trial
A WHOPPING 95 per cent of people are immune to leprosy. A TRIAL date has been set for a man accused of stirring up racial hatred in two speeches.
Jack Renshaw, 22, is said to have committed the public order offences during a demonstration by the far-right group North West Infidels in Blackpool on March 12 last year and at a speech at the Yorkshire Forum for Nationalists in North Yorkshire on a date between June 15, 2015, and November 18, 2016.
Appearing at Preston Crown Crown via video-link from HMP Preston, Renshaw – of Skelmersdale – entered not guilty pleas to the two charges.
His trial will take place on January 2 next year.
Renshaw was arrested by officers from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit over alleged derogatory comments made about Jewish people.
