Aldershot incidents lead to three accused of racism offences

Three men have been charged with racially-aggravated crimes, following three separate incidents in Aldershot.

Charles Dolphin, of Alexandra Road, Farnborough, and George Bannister, of Stoke Hills, Farnham, face a racially aggravated public order offence.

Daniel Tierney, of Longacre, Ash, is charged with the same offence and one count of racially and religiously-aggravated disorder.

All three were arrested around the town, on Saturday night.

Mr Dolphin, 45, was detained after police were called to Gala Bingo Hall, in Aldershot High Street to reports of a man being abusive and threatening a man in the street.

He was remanded in custody to appear before Basingstoke magistrates on Monday.

Mr Bannister, 66, was arrested after a woman reported to police a man was making racist comments towards her in Union Street, Aldershot.

Mr Tierney, 21, was arrested after police attended the Funky End bar, in Aldershot, where staff reported a man threatening violence towards door staff and making racially-abusive comments.

Mr Bannister and Mr Tierney were bailed to appear separately before Aldershot magistrates on 13 June.
