Man charged over heroin leaflets

A man from Lancashire has been charged over the distribution of hundreds of leaflets that blamed Muslims for the heroin trade.

Anthony Bamber, 53, Greenbank Street, Preston, is accused of incitement to commit religious hatred.

The pamphlets were sent to households in areas of North Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria in November.

Mr Bamber will appear before Preston Magistrates' Court on Wednesday. Three other men were released without charge.
