Man Found Guilty Of Poppy Burning

A man has been found guilty of burning poppies on Armistice Day during a protest in west London.

Under the Public Order Act, Emdadur Choudhury, 26, of Spitalfields, east London, was fined 50.

Choudhury denied the charge at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court while another person - a 30-year-old man from Bethnal Green - was not charged.

The men were accused of burning three poppies during protests on 11 November in Kensington.

The incidents took place at the end point of a charity march, close to the Royal Albert Hall, where serving members of the Armed Forces handed over books of condolence ahead of Remembrance Sunday.
