A BNP party member has been convicted of attacking an anti-fascist demonstrator, in a protracted court saga.
Peter Tierney, 53, from Liverpool, was found guilty by a unanimous verdict at Liverpool Crown Court last Thursday for smashing Nicholas Barnett over the head with a camera tripod.
The incident, which took place on St George’s Day last year, saw BNP supporters and members of Merseyside Coalition against Racism and Fascism clash in Liverpool’s city centre.
Mr Barnett required hospital treatment after the incident.
