According to an article in the Heanor & Ripley News, Alan Warner, on whose land the Red White and Blue festival is supposed to take place, has had anti-BNP messages daubed on his wall.
BNP festival man’s property vandalised
The BNP member who will stage the party’s annual festival on his land later this year has told how his property has been targeted by vandals.
Alan Warner, of Codnor Denby Lane in Denby village, a former BNP councillor on Heanor Town Council said he woke on Wednesday morning to find a torrent of abuse daubed on his garden wall in white paint.
He said: “I got up and there were three bike locks attached to my gate.
“BNP Scum was painted in big letters on his wall, along with Swastikas and other offensive slogans.
“I started to clean it but feel like leaving it so everyone can see it and see what people we are dealing with creeping around in the night.”
The BNP’s annual red, white and blue festival will be held on Mr Warner’s land in August for the second year running but controversially will be staged without live music and a licence to sell alcohol after objections from the police and councillors.
Mr Warner has contacted police about the damage.
He said: “We are a political party and not racist as they keep making out.”
