Kinlochleven man fined for racist jibes

A KINLOCHLEVEN man was fined £320 at Fort William Sheriff Court this week after admitting making racist comments about Syrians.

The court heard there were several Syrian families living in the Kinlochleven area, and two of these residents were in the village’s Tailrace pub on the night of June 9 this year when the offence took place.

Fiscal Depute Robert Weir told the court that pub staff had overheard John May, 41, who was in the company of a group of people, making comments, including those accusing Syrians in the UK of ‘sponging off the government’ and that they should all ‘p**s off back to their own country’.
