Race hate pair punished

Two young men who racially abused Asian cricketers on the field next to Patchway Common Pavilion last June have been dealt with by the youth court.

A 19-year-old from Bradley Stoke and an 18-year-old from Patchway were convicted in December of racially aggravated public order.

The 19-year-old was ordered to carry out 24 hours’ community service and pay compensation to his victims and costs.

The 17-year-old was also ordered to pay compensation and costs, and must spend 18 hours at an Attendance Centre.
