Britain’s First’s Paul Golding beaten up in jail

Paul Golding

The leader of the far-right, Islamophobic Britain First group has been punched by two fellow inmates in jail.

Paul Golding, 36, was attacked in HMP Elmley on the Isle of Sheppey and moved to a care and separation unit after the attack on Wednesday afternoon.

The Mirror reported Golding was left with a suspected broken nose when he was attacked by two fellow inmates.

Kent Police, which is investigating the attack, said Golding suffered “minor facial injuries”.

Golding and Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen, 32, were jailed earlier this month after being convicted of religiously aggravated harassment.

Fransen was handed a 36-week sentence and Golding was jailed for 18 weeks.

The pair, both from Penge in south-east London, had been arrested over the distribution of leaflets and posting of online videos during a gang rape trial.

They were convicted on a joint charge after an incident last May at a pizza takeaway shop in Ramsgate, when Fransen banged on the windows and doors of the shop and screamed “paedophile” and “foreigner”.
