College student facing mosque attack charges has bail relaxed

A Kingston College student accused of being part of a gang who allegedly attacked Kingston mosque has had his bail relaxed to allow him to continue his studies.

James Stacey, 18, of Ashhurst Drive, Shepperton, is one of nine defendants facing trial at Kingston Crown Court in September for the attack on November 21 last year. He was among six men at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, August 25, who have denied charges of affray and religiously aggravated criminal damage.

Three men have already been committed to the Crown Court. All nine men were banned from entering the borough of Kingston at an earlier hearing as part of their bail conditions.

Jordan Ellingham, 21, of Camden Avenue, Feltham, Martin Pottle, 22, of Eldridge Close, Feltham, Karl Mathews, 20, of High Street, Brentford, Terence Earl, 31, of Aspen Lane, Northolt and Adam Khalfan, Feltham Road, Ashford, will have a hearing on September 22 before a trial.

They will be joined by Paul Abley, 24, of Hounslow Road, Shepperton, Alfie Wallace, 18, of Hetherington Road, Shepperton and David Morris, 20, of Elm Way, Epsom.
