“White only zone” Racist posters plastered across British town spark police investigation


Police are now investigating the “racist crime” after they were inundated with complaints when the “white zones” signs appeared in a street and an underpass in Newbury, Berkshire. 

The racist flyers show a masked cartoon character posing with a Hitler salute, along with the slogan: “White zone, national action.” 

A spokesman from Thames Valley Police said the posters were spotted in Chestnut Crescent and the underpass under the A4 and into Almond Avenue. 

The spokesman said: “Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after several racist flyers have been posted in Newbury.

“Posters advocating “white zones” were discovered. Officers are asking for people to come forward with any information as to who may have placed these stickers.” 

Sergeant Holly Nicholls said the shocking signs had been removed. 

She added: “Thames Valley Police has received a complaint from a member of the public.

“The offensive nature of the “white zone” posters, in addition to the fact that they were fly-posted, led to the removal of the posters. 

“If you witnessed anyone hanging these posters, see any posters of concern or have information that will help our investigation.”
