Mansfield Court

Two men will appear in court in connection with a report of a video shared on social media containing racist comments toward Home Secretary Priti Patel.

Jake Henderson, 28, of Retford, and Robert Cumming, 26, of Doncaster, have been summoned to appear in court to face a charge of sending a grossly offensive message by a public communication network in connection with the incident between January 20 and 23.

They will appear at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on June 29.

Superintendent Kev Broadhead, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Reports of this nature are taken very seriously. Working with the Crown Prosecution Service we are now in a position to charge two people in connection with the offence.

“This is an active case and people should not publish or share anything online that could potentially impact on a fair trial during court proceedings.”
