A WOMAN has shared her disgust after seeing what she described as “vile language” and “racist hate speech” etched onto a bridge in Saltaire.

The writing, how it has been marked onto the bridge is unclear, includes slogans such as “Tommy is a hero” and “F**k the police”.

The woman said other phrases included “kill the left” and “free Tommy”.

She said it was “horrible and racist hate speech” and used “vile language” which could be read by children.

Who wrote the messages on the bridge in Roberts Park is unknown.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson, was jailed for nine months this week for contempt of court, after breaching reporting restrictions on a major grooming trial.
