Man jailed for racist slurs

A man who shouted racist insults at Muslim worshippers outside a Cumbria mosque has been jailed for six months. Bryan Cork shouted slurs including “proud to be British” and “go back to where you came from” outside Carlisle’s Brook Street mosque. He pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment on 30 November at the city’s Crown Court on Tuesday. Judge Paul Batty, QC, told Cork, of Thompson Street, Carlisle, that racism in any form would not be tolerated.
