Attack On Teen Goth Deemed A Hate Crime By Police


(TeamRock Radio) Police in Nottinghamshire are treating an attack on a teenage goth as a hate crime. Ryan Winnals, 19, was so badly beaten by a gang of youths outside a Tesco store in Huthwaite on May 21 that he was left unconscious and ended up needing Surgery.

Nottinghamshire Police is the 11th UK police force to treat attacks on members of subcultures as hate crimes, thanks to tireless campaigning by Sylvia Lancaster - the mother of murdered goth Sophie Lancaster.

Ryan tells the BBC: "It all happened so fast. I was just leaning against the wall, sat on my phone, looking at something. I put my phone away, looked up, the next thing I know is I'm getting hit."

Nottinghamshire Police are appealing for witnesses to the attack, which took place at around 4pm. Read more here.
