A man accused of carrying out a mock hanging of a life-sized golliwog doll while wearing a Klu Klux Klan costume has appeared in court.

Christopher Philips, formerly known as Darren Clifft, 23, from Willenhall, was charged with two counts of stirring up racial hatred at a music concert.

Walsall Magistrates' Court heard the incident allegedly happened at an right wing group's event in Wales in March.

Mr Philips did not enter a plea and was bailed to appear on 24 October.

He was arrested in March following an investigation by the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit.
