The London Evening Standard reports on the sentencing of a man who plastered “Islamophobic stickers” around a park in West London.

Patrick Collier, 40, was arrested in connection with the appearance of “offensive” stickers on noticeboards in Lillie Park and in nearby Lillie Road Recreational Ground in Fulham between October 18 and December 13, 2016.

Collier pleaded guilty to intentionally causing racially and religiously aggravated harassment, alarm and distress when he appeared before Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 13 January. 

Collier was handed a 12-month community order and must attend a 35-day rehabilitation course.

DS Sanj Bhanot from Hammersmith and Fulham Community Safety Unit said: “Hate crime is unacceptable and any offence is of great concern.

“This investigation was a great display of joint partnership working, involving the Community Safety Unit, Fulham Safer Neighbourhood Team, Parks Police and Fulham Council who collectively applied both covert and overt methods, which resulted in Patrick Collier being arrested and convicted for these offences.”
