Breaking News

A photograph has emerged of a BNP councillor pictured with three men giving a Nazi salute standing next to a war memorial.

Steve Batkin is a councillor at Stoke-on-Trent City Council and is also a governor at two secondary schools.

The image, taken in 2002 in Stone, shows Mr Batkin and saluting far-right activists with a Union Jack flag.

Mr Batkin said the men were expressing their "rebelliousness" but admitted the image was "regrettable".
