Racist stickers saying “rapefugees not welcome” have appeared on lampposts and bus stops in a coastal town.
The anti-immigration stickers, which are being investigated by police, show the logo of the North West Infidels, a far-right group.
The images display the popular man’s name Muhammad and list defamatory statements underneath. A sticker at the Market Place in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, portrays refugees as chasing a woman with knives.
Local residents expressed anger at the signs. One said that she had reported the “awful” stickers to police and the council but more were appearing.
