A racist thug who ripped a Muslim woman’s niqab off and shouted “Our Britain, you live by our f**king rules” will be sentenced next week.

Peter Scotter, 56, who attacked the woman at a Sunderland shopping centre last July, will be sentenced next Friday.

The incident took place in front of the victim’s nine-year-old son.

The perpetrator had approached the mother, who was waiting for her husband outside a shop in Sunderland’s Bridges centre.

He ripped her niqab off and the force nearly forced her to the ground.

The court heard in February how Scotter shouted: “Take that f**ker off you stupid f**king Muslim” during the horrific attack, along with other Islamophobic slurs.

Whilst walking away witnesses heard him chanting: “Our Britain, you live by our f**king rules.”

The racist thug was convicted in Newcastle Crown Court on Wednesday where he pleaded guilty to racially aggravated assault.

He also admitted a charge of racially aggravated intentional harassment, alarm or distress.

Scotter was due to be sentenced on Wednesday but the case has been adjourned due to his mouth cancer diagnosis.

He has 66 previous convictions for 157 offences, including racially aggravated criminal damage, breaching a Football Banning Order and actual bodily harm.
