Dyfed-Powys Police investigating tweets posted by BNP leader Nick Griffin
DYFED-POWYS Police have become involved in an investigation about Tweets posted by BNP leader Nick Griffin.
The force covers the area where Mr Griffin lives, in Newtown, Powys.
His comments on Twitter relate to the court case of a Christian woman in Cambridgeshire who refused to let two gay men share a double bed at her guest house.
A court ruled this week that the owner of the guest house, Susanne Wilkinson, had discriminated against the men because of their sexuality.

But Mr Griffin said the men, Michael Black and John Morgan, had “abused the system to persecute the owner.”
He had earlier urged Twitter followers to hold a demonstration near the two men’s home.
He claimed the reference “give you a bit of drama” in his tweet was commenting on the fact the couple were involved in amateur dramatics, and he had only wanted a “peaceful” demonstration.
Dyfed-Powys Police are working with Cambridgeshire Police to see if the BNP leader has committed an offence.
