Charges over bacon tossing

TWO men and a woman have appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court after bacon was allegedly thrown at the Central Mosque.

Douglas Cruikshank, 37, Chelsea Lambie, 17, and Wayne Stilwel, 24, were charged with a racially prejudiced offence.

All three, from Lothian and Borders, appeared separately in private before Sheriff James Scott yesterday. No plea or declaration was made and they were released on bail pending further inquiry. But they were ordered not to go within 100 metres of any mosque.

It is alleged the mosque, at Potterrow, had bacon thrown at it, which stuck to it, on 
January 31.
