Police spotter failed to report Nazi hooligans, Rotherham 12 trial hears

A police “spotter” failed to report seeing Nazi troublemakers on the day of a big anti-fascist protest, a court has heard.

The anti-fascist protest in September last year marked the racist murder of grandfather Mushin Ahmed in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. It was a counter-protest against a Nazi Britain First march.

A group of Asian men known as the Rotherham 12 are on trial at Sheffield Crown Court accused of violent disorder following the protest.

The court heard that PC Daniel Welbourne spotted three members of the fascist group Yorkshire’s Finest outside the notorious William Fry pub “hotspot”. At least an hour and a half later it was the scene of a violent racist attack on Asian demonstrators.

Welbourne knew the three as members of Rotherham United football hooligans known as Section 5, who were linked to right wing groups.
