Cumbria Police are appealing for witnesses following two incidents in Barrow over the weekend where Indian restaurants were targeted.

The following night, at around 11pm, bottles and other objects were thrown at the Mithali restaurant in Cavendish Street  (incident 219 of 6 June).

Three men were arrested following this incident. Two men aged 24 and 26 and from Barrow were arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offences. They were subsequently bailed.

A third man, Thomas Maxwell, 25, of Oak Head Road, Walney, has been charged with two counts of racially aggravated criminal damage and a racially aggravated public order offence. He was also charged with racially aggravated common assault, unrelated to the above incidents.

He is due to appear at Barrow Magistrates’ Court today (8 June).

Inspector Gareth Jesson said: “Hate crimes against any member of our community will not be tolerated.

"Tensions are high in Barrow at the moment, but such offending remains completely unacceptable.

“Officers have responded swiftly in arresting three men in connection with these offences and we will continue to treat reports of this type extremely seriously. I would urge anyone who with information or knowledge of any such offending to come forward immediately.”
