Man in court for KKK hanging of golliwog

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: People at the gig dress in KKK costumes and hang the doll

A MAN has appeared in court due to allegations that he carried out a mock hanging of a life-sized golliwog doll while wearing a Klu Klux Klan costume.

Christopher Philips, formerly known as Darren Clifft, 23, from Willenhall, near Wolverhampton, has been charged with two counts of inciting racial hatred at a music concert.

Heard at Walsall Magistrates' Court, the incident is said to have occurred at an right wing group's event in Wales in March this year.

Philips was arrested following an investigation by the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit.

Philips did not enter a plea and was bailed to appear again in court on October 24, 2013.
