A SERIES of posters and stickers urging the public to 'save the white race' have been spotted in the town.

The posters, which also call for white people to awake, have been designed by a group called the Creativity Alliance.

On their website, it claims that the 'continued biological [of white people's] existence on this planet is in doubt'. 

Mark Blackburn, of Saxon Park, Sankey Bridges, has come forward to express his shock at the nature of the posters.

He said: "I was quite shocked. I know racism is out there but I was quite shocked to find it in our town."

The 30-year-old also expressed his disgust at finding the posters and stickers near to schools and has been removing them.

Both the council and police have said they were aware that some posters had been found in the town.

A council spokesperson said: “Fly posting of any racist, offensive or obscene material will not be tolerated and we have reported this incident to the police.

“If individuals are caught fly posting we can issue a fixed penalty notice of £75 and people convicted of fly posting can be fined up to £2,500.

“The council will also remove any offensive material on public property as soon as possible."

A spokesman for Cheshire Police added: “Police have been made aware of two instances of these posters being posted at locations in Warrington, which were subsequently removed from local authority property.

“We are currently investigating if there are any other occurrences in Cheshire or elsewhere nationally." 

Anyone with information about those responsible is urged to call Sgt Mark Spaven by calling Cheshire Police on 101.
