A man who left a frozen pig's head outside a community centre used by a Muslim group has been given a 12-week suspended jail sentence.

Liam Ferrar, 24, of Brook Road, Leicester, admitted a charge of intent to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

Leicester Magistrates' Court heard he left the severed head on the steps of the city's Thurnby Lodge Community Centre on 26 December.

He was also ordered to carry out 250 hours of unpaid community work.

The sentence was suspended for a year because of Ferrar's previous good character and a letter of apology. A district judge ordered him to pay £85 in costs.
