A man accused of throwing bacon and sausages onto a mosque in Cricklewood has appeared in court.

Alexis Garner, formerly of Anson Road, Cricklewood, and now The Avenue, Wembley, had been charged with racially or religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress following the incident at the Mosque and Islamic Centre in Howard Road.

The 31-year-old appeared before Hendon Magistrates Court last week where the charges were withdrawn.

He was convicted of two counts of using threatening or abusive behaviour within hearing or sight of persons likely to be caused distress regarding separate incidents on June 25 and 29.

He was handed down two 12 month conditional discharge, to run concurrently, and ordered to pay a total of £30 victim’s surcharge fee.
