A TROUBLEMAKER who caused mayhem in and around Burnley matches for nearly three years has been banned from attending any football game in the UK for the foreseeable future.

Billy Rambadt, 19, will not be able to follow Burnley home or away, or attend any football ground until the end of January 2019 under a football banning order imposed by Pennine magistrates.

He will also be prevented from going within a mile of Turf Moor on matchdays or be caught on a train en-route to an England international over the next three years.

Not only was he spotted as part of the major public disorder, following the Clarets’ clash with Sheffield Wednesday in 2013. but he was involved in a number of other confrontations with either police or stewards, according to football intelligence officers.

The teenager was ejected from the ground in 2015, after being abusive to stewards, was seen behaving in an anti-social manner when Burnley played Chelsea in the Premier League, and was also involved in public disorder at the Southampton game in 2014, the court heard.

Rambadt, of Elim View, off Marsden Road, Burnley, who was represented in court by Mark Williams, was also ordered to pay £200 costs to Lancashire Constabulary.

Several other football banning order cases are understood to be in the pipeline.

Speaking after the case, Chief Insp Phil Hutchinson said: “The majority of people who attend football matches are law abiding fans who simply want to watch a good match and enjoy the experience.

“However there are still a very small minority of people intent on causing trouble and it is our intention to do everything within our power to stop them.

“We are pleased to have secured this banning order and hope that this firm action sends a clear message to others who attend football matches that violence, disorder and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.”

The banning order prevents Rambadt from being within the vicinity of Turf Moor for four hours before and after any match kicks off. He must also notify the police if any of his personal details change.

Attacks woman in front of her children just hours after walking free from court
Mother-of-four had chunks of hair pulled out and vile racist abuse was thrown at her
He had just been given a community order for previous assault on a man with learning difficulties

A thug out celebrating his ‘lenient’ court sentence left a shop worker cowering and crying in front of her children in a sickening attack.

Kieron Wright was given a community order in March for his part in a cowardly assault that left a man with learning difficulties battered and bleeding in a pub toilet in Sunderland.

Within 24 hours of walking out of court the 19-year-old, who was given an ASBO in 2010, had turned his violence on Syeda Chowdhury, known as Sally, at a store in the city.

Newcastle Crown Court heard yesterday during the terrifying attack the
victim had chunks of her hair pulled out and vile racist abuse was thrown at her.

Wright was handed a suspended sentence for his latest attack by Judge Roger Thorn QC.

The mum-of-four has been told it could take two years for her missing hair to grow back.

Prosecutor Richard Herrmann told the court the violence flared when Mrs
Chowdhury confronted Wright over a pack of pork scratchings he had walked out of the store with but not paid for.

As the trouble spilled outside Mrs Chowdhury ended up standing at the door of her nearby home and her children came out.

Mr Herrmann said: ‘The defendant became racially abusive to her, throwing punches in her direction.

‘Two other people became involved, one who was convicted of threatening
behaviour.

‘The complainant describes she was very upset during the incident.

‘She was shaking, crying and chunks of her hair were on the ground.

‘Her children were screaming at the distress of the situation.’

Wright, of no fixed address, admitted breaching the original community order, breach of an antisocial behaviour order and affray.

Judge Thorn said: ‘He got what he thought was a lenient sentence and
went out to celebrate to such an extent he committed the affray.’

Tony Hawks, defending, said Wright has been in Durham jail since March, which he has found an ‘intimidating experience.’

Judge Thorn said because Wright has spent the equivalent of a 12-month sentence on remand his 12-month prison sentence for the offence will be suspended for 18-months, with supervision.

The judge told him: ‘Newcastle Crown Court, in your view clearly, gave you a lenient sentence that you were not expecting.

‘I’m not going to express my own view of that because I don’t know the
circumstances in which you were sentenced.

‘You went out and celebrated in a completely foolish way and committed further offences.’

As Wright left the court Judge Thorn warned him: ‘The last thing you ought to do is go and celebrate.’

Kyle Pakes tried to erase footage of the attack by Jonathan Wrigley on Jamie Mulcahy, who suffered serious brain damage and died a year later

A pub worker who tried to erase incriminating CCTV following the stabbing of a pub worker has been jailed.

Jamie Mulcahy, 26, was left ‘seriously brain damaged’ after he was attacked in Bacup, Lancashire, by pub manager Jonathan Wrigley in November 2014.

He had been receiving round-the-clock care until he passed away on December 5 last year .

Kyle Pakes, of Lennox Walk, Heywood , was instructed by Wrigley the morning after the attack to delete CCTV from the pub which showed the incident outside and Wrigley changing his clothes and washing his blood-covered hands in the sink, Burnley Crown Court heard.

But the court heard that he failed to carry out the task despite receiving telephone instructions from a CCTV engineer and it was later deleted by Wrigley’s cousin Curtis Munro.

Pakes, 22, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and was jailed for 10 months.

Stephen Parker, prosecuting, told the court how Wrigley stabbed Mr Mulcahy with a ‘butterfly knife’ during a 20-man town centre fight and then ‘made various attempts to foil the police investigation, one of which involved the actions of this defendant’.

The court heard Wrigley contacted the engineer who had installed the CCTV.

Mr Parker said: “He told the engineer something about his girlfriend and not wanting her to see it and that there may well have been some infidelity.”

Pakes later called the engineer from the pub.

Mr Parker added: “He said Pakes seemed unable to read properly and came across as a bit thick.

“He was really struggling with the man he was speaking to who was struggling to understand the system.”

The court heard Pakes became ‘frustrated’ after two or three minutes and told the engineer to ‘just leave it’.

Munro then went round to the pub and spoke to the engineer for around 10 minutes about deleting the CCTV.

Mr Parker said: “It was believed at the time that Munro had been successful but a technical expert for the police managed to retrieve it.”

Wrigley, 34, of Todmorden Road, Bacup, pleaded guilty to wounding and was jailed for 13 years and six months in July .

Munro, 21, of Queen’s Park Road, Heywood, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and was jailed for 16 months at the same hearing.

Judge Ian Leeming QC said it was an ‘extremely serious offence’ and there ‘must be immediate custody’.

Sentencing, he said: “This is a very serious offence but less grave than Munro as there was not the same determined effort and it didn’t work.

“You set about the task maybe out of misplaced loyalty. You were not very skilled at this, even under instruction. The engineer doubted your intellectual capacity and ability generally.

“I accept you’re genuinely remorseful.

“It’s very rare for a sentence for this offence to be suspended and it’s clear that neither a community order nor a fine could be justified. There must be immediate custody.”

Philip Holden, defending, said Pakes was Wrigley’s ‘first port of call’ because he knew he would be an ‘easy touch because of his intellect’.

He said: “Wrigley was a man in his 30s who deliberately sought out this defendant for those reasons.

“Wrigley didn’t want to be anywhere near that pub and wanted to continue to distance himself from it. He was working at the pub and knew his way around it.

“It was a pretty amateurish and poor attempt.”

Darren Mark Lumb, who has previous links to the BNP and EDL, verbally attacked the MP in January this year in West Yorkshire

A constituent has pleaded guilty to mounting an antisemitic verbal attack against Labour MP and shadow communities secretary Jon Trickett.

On 23 January 2015, Darren Mark Lumb, 47, stopped the the MP for Hemsworth in West Yorkshire in the street and launched into an antisemitic tirade against him.

During the trial on Thursday at Leeds crown court, Lumb changed his plea to guilty to one count of religiously aggravated harassment and stalking with fear of violence, and one count of breaching an asbo.

umb – who has been known to Trickett’s office for a decade – was released on bail on the condition that he did not approach the MP or any member of his staff and he will return to court on 3 March for sentencing.

Lumb has previously had links to the British National Party (BNP), the English Defence League (EDL) and the National Front, and served as BNP organiser for Wakefield and later West Yorkshire.

He has previous convictions for assault and disorder and was convicted in 2011 of using racially aggravated threatening or insulting words and behaviour after he reportedly called a petrol station worker “a black bastard”.

Lumb, who lives in South Elmsall, stood as a BNP candidate for South Elmsall and South Kirkby in the Wakefield Metropolitan district council election in 2011, where he won 441 votes, 2.6% below the Conservative candidate.

A friend of Trickett’s said the MP had been left shocked and shaken by the incident and that “he hasn’t experienced rage like it in his life”.

Jon Trickett has been MP for Hemsworth since 1996. He served as the parliamentary private secretary to prime minister Gordon Brown from 2008 to 2010 and was then promoted to the shadow cabinet by Ed Miliband in 2011.

Trickett was one of 36 MPs to nominate Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour leadership election and was made shadow secretary of state for communities and local government in the shadow cabinet reshuffle following Corbyn’s landslide victory in September 2015.

David Sadgrove, 61, shouted “you are a terrorist” at Mrs Saltana, who was with her two-year-old child, in November last year

A Woking man has been fined more than £350 for shouting ‘you are a terrorist’ at a Muslim woman in the wake of the Paris attacks.

David Sadgrove, of Courtenay Road, pleaded guilty to two counts of racially aggravated harassment at a hearing at Guildford Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (January 19).

The 61-year-old man was arrested on November 15 after he asked Zamurd Saltana to move her car, which was parked on the pavement near his home, and became abusive.

Mrs Saltana was visiting someone in the street and had a two-year-old child with her.

Prosecuting, Johnson Shittu said: “She had just parked her car on Courtney Road when Mr Sadgrove had approached her and he asked her if she was a Muslim and if she was religious.

“He started to become abusive and aggressive.”

Mr Shittu said Sadgrove had sworn at Mrs Sultana and said: “‘You have killed so many people in Paris’”.

“It was clearly petrifying,” he said.

The court heard that two other men heard the noise as Sadgrove continued to shout: “You are a terrorist, you are going to blow someone up.”

Defending Sadgrove, Trudi Levico said the attacks in Paris provided context to the offence and that the defendant had a ‘myriad of problems’, caused by chronic arthritis in his hip and knee and was aided by a walking stick.

“He was on the pavement and he couldn’t get past those vehicles,” Mrs Levico said.

“He says he starts a relatively civil conversation about moving it.

“He has had problems on that stretch of the road before, it must be one whereby vehicles in order to free the road up park on the pavement.”

Once Sadgrove became abusive, two men living in the street came outside, including Parvaiz Mohammad, who Sadgrove also verbally abused.

Mrs Levico argued that Mrs Sultana did not state she was ‘petrified’.

“She says in her statement that when the two males come out he makes various comments to them,” she said.

“One of the males said to him to ‘try it’ and see what they would do to him.

“She told them to not talk to the English man like that.

“[The statement] said, ‘he was an old man and he looks ill to me’”.

The bench heard that Sadgrove had previous convictions in 2011 and 2003 but did not have a ‘pattern’ of offending.

He is a recipient of the disability living allowance and other benefits while waiting for an operation and was deemed ‘unfit’ for unpaid work for the offence.

Sentencing Sadgrove to a fine of £382, chair of the bench Mrs Lesley Shanks said the racial element to his offence had increased his debt.

“You were swearing and those offences did happen in front of a two-year-old child,” she said.

Sadgrove was fined £200 for the first offence and £75 for the second.

He was also ordered to pay £87 in costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Magistrates expressed surprise that no-one else was charged alongside Keith Edward Hall, 38, of Bath Street, Rhyl

Keith Hill

A man has been given a suspended prison sentence for a firework attack on a mosque.

Magistrates saw video footage which showed Keith Edward Hall twice approaching the Islamic Centre in Rhyl, lighting the fireworks and pushing them through the letterbox on November 11.

In the background, a man and woman could be heard laughing and shouting: “Hurry up.”

Having seen the film, Prestatyn magistrates expressed surprise that no-one else has been charged in connection with the attack.

Hall, 38, of Bath Street, Rhyl, had pleaded guilty to religiously aggravated criminal damage at the centre in Water Street.

In the footage, filmed from the doorway of the Bow Bar opposite, Hall was seen approaching the mosque twice in 20 minutes.

In a victim impact statement, Rafiq Ullah, the centre’s treasurer, said the damage could have been much greater had they not taken measures to improve fire safety after a previous incident.

He said people could easily have been injured as the prayer room was behind the door.

The incident occurred only two days before the Paris shootings, and Mr Ullah said tension at the mosque was high in that period. It eased when Hall was arrested.

When interviewed, Hall said he could remember very little about the incident because he had drunk eight litres of cider and eight shorts.

He woke up the following morning with a sore arm where part of the letterbox surround had hit him when it was blown off.

He denied being a racist and claimed to have several friends from ethnic minorities.

Alex Fitzgerald, representing Hall, said he found it “astonishing” that no-one else had been charged even though they were interviewed.

Mr Fitzgerald told the court that Hall did not even realise that the building was a mosque.

“It was not born out of a deep-seated hate of the Muslim community, but was an act of utter stupidity,” he said.

“He is embarrassed at his stupidity and wishes to apologise. Alcohol affects his thinking and his behaviour.”

Hall was given a 16-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months, and must also observe a 7pm-7am curfew and attend a six-month alcohol treatment course and 25 days of rehabilitation.

He was also ordered to pay compensation of £558, costs of £300 and a surcharge of £80.

The Bench made a restraining order prohibiting him from entering Water Street for 12 months.

dean kenny

A LEADING member of the English Defence League is still on the run after he was jailed for 18 months in his absence.

Dean Kenney, 41, from Bannister Green Villas, Felsted, had already admitted to violent disorder at the 2,000-strong EDL rally in Birmingham city centre in July 2013, along with 15 co-defendants.

But he failed to appear at Birmingham Crown Court for sentencing on January 5 and is believed to have fled the UK.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said he is on their wanted list, but is no longer being actively pursued.

At the moment, Kenney only faces the violent disorder sentence, but failing to appear before the court can be a separate offence.

In July 2013 members of the far-right organisation clashed with 300 anti-fascist counter-demonstrators and police in Birmingham city centre.

Missiles were thrown, including bottles and rocks, with an estimated £6,000 of damage caused to a hotel.
