Racist posters removed from two locations in Newbury

RACIST posters advocating 'white zones' have been discovered in Newbury. 

Thames Valley Police said that the offensive flyers were discovered in Chestnut Crescent and the A4 underpass leading to Almond Avenue on Monday, November 28. 

Sergeant Holly Nicholls, of Newbury Police Station, said: "Thames Valley Police has received a complaint from a member of the public. 

"The offensive nature of the 'white zone' posters, in addition to the fact that they were fly-posted, led to the removal of the posters." 

The posters are linked to National Action, a neo-Nazi British nationalist youth movement, and were posted in Glasgow shortly after the Brexit vote in June. 

Officers are asking for people to come forward with any information as to who may have placed these stickers.  Residents should also call Thames Valley Police on 101 to report sightings of the posters and stickers.

"If you witnessed anyone hanging these posters, see any posters of concern or have information that will help our investigation, please call Thames Valley Police on 101 citing reference number 43160334514."

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    I'm not surprised. Disgusted, but not surprised. It's the uneducated and angry that find comfort in the mentality that spawns this sort of group.
