Cumbrian BNP activists charged with racially aggravated offence

Two BNP activists have been charged with racially aggravated public order after an investigation into election leaflets.

Forty-six-year-old Clive Jefferson, of Slatefell Drive, Cockermouth and Dawn Charlton, 49, of Ewanrigg Road, Maryport, will appear in court later this month.

Both have been charged with a section five public order offence.

They were arrested on Wednesday morning as part of a police probe into leaflets distributed in Maryport in the run-up to May’s district elections.
