BNP conceal leaflets filled with racist lies in kids' library books

The Mirror's Hope not Hate tour visited Nottingham yesterday as it emerged the racist BNP has targeted children in the city.

Our round-Britain bus campaign visited a sports celebration for school pupils in one of the most multi-racial parts of the country. At the same time, staff at a library in the suburb of West Bridgeford discovered BNP activists had planted promotional leaflets - featuring American actors posing as British workers - between the pages of children's books.

Meanwhile police chiefs were furious after postmen stuffed BNP leaflets inside their newsletter before delivering them to homes. A Northants Police spokeswoman said: "Was are an apolitical organisation and we would not want any political leaflets delivered with Home Beat." The Royal Mail said: "Our guidelines state that no materials should be combined with another customer's mailing. If this has happened we apologise."

BNP deputy leader Simon Darby said: "Would the police have complained if it had been the Lib Dems or Labour? I think they are showing their own political bias."

Today the Hope Not Hate bus visits Sheffield city centre (10am) and Barnsley Community Centre (3pm).

This happened near where I live a few years ago and then the person who put the leaflets in the school books then wrote to the local press acting as a concerned parent
