Man faces Brussels tweet race-hate charge


A man is facing a social media race-hate charge after a message was posted on his Twitter profile about confronting a Muslim woman over the Brussels terror attacks.

Matthew Doyle, 46, from South Croydon, will appear at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court on Saturday.

He was arrested on Wednesday and charged on Friday with publishing or distributing written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting, likely or intended to stir up racial hatred.

Scotland Yard said he was charged after an investigation by officers at Croydon Police Community Safety Unit.
