Stoke-on-Trent BNP leader Michael Coleman on race charge

BNP leader Michael Coleman has appeared in court on racism charges.

The former councillor will go on trial accused of causing racial harassment over a seven-month period.

It is understood the allegations relate to comments made on the defendant’s website.

The 45-year-old lost his Meir North seat on Stoke-on-Trent City Council in last May’s elections.

The BNP today refused to confirm whether Coleman’s party membership had been suspended.
