Liberal Conspiracy: EDL man with the mosque ‘boom!’ tattoo is arrested

Last week I tweeted a picture of a man with a tattoo of a mosque being blown up. We also ran it on Liberal Conspiracy.

.

The picture and story was subsequently picked up by the Sun and Daily Mail – both asking who the man was.

The man – Shaun Reah – was eventually tracked down by Sky Tyne and Wear.

In the video he says he had the tattoo removed, “because it upset everybody”.

He also admitted that getting the tattoo was “a daft thing to do”.

Watch

.

Police have now arrested him (ht Hope Not Hate).

A spokesman for Northumbria Police said:

A 39-year-old man has been arrested in South Tyneside on behalf of West Midlands Police on suspicion of using words or behavior, or displaying written material with intent to stir up racial hatred.

Photos of the tattoo were taken during an EDL demonstration in Birmingham on Saturday July 20.
