Police in Honiton are trying to trace a man they believe can assist with inquiries after several residents had ‘racist’ leaflets hand-delivered through their doors.
Residents in New Street received the leaflets on Wednesday, August 8, which are believed to be from the “Devon Patriot”.
A police spokesman said: “These leaflets were of a racist and xenophobic nature which have caused alarm and distress to those who received them.”
A leaflet was also found at Honiton railway station and CCTV footage shows a male holding one or more of these leaflets.
