    This right-wing extremist certainly got his comeuppance...still no news on how he died though.

    A man serving 12-months behind bars for leaving a bacon sandwich outside a mosque has been found dead in his prison cell.

    Kevin Crehan, 35, was jailed along with three others in July this year after the gang left rashers of bacon on door handles of the Jamia Mosque in Totterdown, Bristol.

    Crehan, Alison Bennett, 46, and Mark Bennett, 48, and Angelina Swales, 31, admitted hurling racial abuse at a member of the mosque and leaving a St George’s flag tied to a fence nearby.

    Images posted on Facebook showed bacon sandwiches left outside the place of worship.

    A judge at Bristol Crown Court described the incident as “an attack on England”.

    The prison service confirmed Crehan was found dead in his cell at HMP Bristol on Tuesday.

    A spokesman told the Sun: “HMP Bristol prisoner Kevin Crehan died in custody on Tuesday 27 December.

    “As with all deaths in custody, the independent Prisons and Probation Ombudsman will investigate.”

    Officers from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit and Lancashire Constabulary have today, Wednesday 11 January 2017, arrested a 21 year old man from Blackpool on suspicion of public order offences.The man was arrested on suspicion of two offences contrary to Section 18 of the Public Order Act 1986 - using threatening/abusive/insulting words or behaviour or displaying written material with intent/likely to stir up racial hatred.
    The arrest relates to comments made at an event in Blackpool in March 2016 and to comments made on social media.

    Not terrorism, racism yes, but not terror related - yet another example of the establishment using the word terrorism to pass new laws.

    To be fair, no one's saying he's a terrorist, it's just that it was investigated by the counter terrorism unit. Have to say though, it's hard to see why they should be wasting valuable resources on this. Surely it's something the regular police could handle?
