Man jailed for dumping pig's head outside mosque

A 21-year-old man who dumped a pig's head outside a mosque has been jailed for three months.

Rory Rowbottom left the hog's head outside the mosque in Pound Street in Newbury, Berkshire last October.

Rowbottom, of Poffley Place in Thatcham, pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment and a Section 4 public order offence at Reading Magistrates' Court today, police said.

Chief Inspector Lindsey Finch of Thames Valley Police said the whole community was "distressed and horrified" by the incident.
