However, this security transpired to be nothing more than two beefy BNP members who were soon arrested for assault during a violent attempt at a citizens arrest. They also racially intimidated the victims. During the same incident two anti fascists were also arrested.
In a discussion on the fascist 'green arrow' blog the BNP confirmed this version of events: 'the two security men were then arrested for assault and racial comments, and taken into police custody,, finger printed, dna sampled, and formerly charged'.
One of these men was the local BNP organiser Barrry Scott. (pictured below).
Following this incident the attacks on the billboard appeared to increase, leaving it almost completely destroyed.
A subsequent arrest was made last Friday after a man set the poster on fire. He was charged but let off with a caution at Aberdeen Sherif court yetsterday.
Unfortunately this local newspaper printed this man's address, leading to threats and intimidation.
