Takeaway Staff In Bolton Speak Out About “Vandalism, Intimidation And Racial Abuse”

Start here

The Bolton News reports on a takeaway in the town where staff allege to have been subjected to “vandalism, intimidation and racial abuse” over the past few weeks.

Mohammad Khan, who works at the Kearsley Pizza and Kebab House in Springfield Road, Kearsley, told the local paper that large groups of young people had started to gather outside the shop between 6pm and 9pm causing trouble and “intimidating” customers from going inside the shop to order food.

Mr Khan, 52, said there had been “several instances of racial abuse” and one occasion, “the doors and one of the windows” were smashed. 

Mr Khan said the situation was untenable and employees were getting to the point where they “don’t want to carry on’. He said the range of damage suffered, to property and vehicle, was expensive and the intimidating environment created for staff and customers was “a nightmare”.

“It’s very, very serious, especially with the racism. It’s happening nearly every night. There are three people working here. It could be putting our jobs on the line,” he said.

The local paper reports that police met with Mr Khan at the weekend and have resolved to place officers on patrol in the area more regularly.
