Three in court accused of throwing bacon at Edinburgh mosque



The Scotsman newspaper reports on the court appearance of three people charged with a racially prejudiced offence after bacon was thrown at Edinburgh's Central Mosque.

The paper reports that the three individuals, Douglas Cruikshank, 37, Chelsea Lambie, 17, and Wayne Stilwel, 24, have been released on bail with the special condition that they do not go within 100 metres of any mosque.

"It is alleged the Central Mosque, in Potterrow, had bacon thrown at it and stuck to certain parts of the building on January 31," according to the paper.
