A man has been jailed after he stripped naked and hurled racist abuse at worshippers barricaded themselves inside a mosque in Folkestone.
Dan Morrison, 26, was filmed singing “I’m Catholic till I die and Christian as well” before he started his racist rant towards worshippers who were inside the mosque.
He shouted at local residents before entering the mosque premises, taking all his clothes off and singing.
Morrison was arrested for the anti-Muslim hate crime outside Folkestone Mosque in Kent around 9pm on Friday 7 July.
One witness described the incident as “a bad dream” which “started to sink in as he was stripping naked and threatening to use violence.”
He added: “My friend got hurt when he was trying to stop the man from entering the mosque.
“The man got extremely upset and he started to climb up the construction crane.
“My friend talked to the man and eventually managed to get him to climb down the crane and put his pants on.
“The man started crying. The police eventually arrived and he was arrested.”
Morrison pleaded guilty to two charges of racially aggravated behaviour and religiously aggravated behaviour a charge of indecent exposure.
Medway Magistrates sentenced him to 26 weeks in jail and ordered him to pay a £115 victim surcharge.
