TWO men have been arrested over alleged hate mail.
Police investigating claims made in an undercover documentary on the British National Party arrested two Dewsbury men yesterday for allegedly sending malicious communication.
The pair, who have not been named, were questioned by West Yorkshire Police, who are probing revelations made in the BBC programme Secret Agent.
Until yesterday, and as a result of the revelations, six men have already been arrested.
A 40-year-old man from Dewsbury was charged with sending malicious communication, while a 38-year-old man, also from Dewsbury, was cautioned for the same offence, a police spokeswoman said.
She said the 40-year- old would appear at Dewsbury Magistrates' Court on August 26.
It is an offence to send an indecent, offensive or threatening letter, electronic communication or other article to another person.
A BNP spokesman said today he was unaware of the arrests and did not know if the pair were party members.
Kirklees organiser Nick Cass said: "We do not condone any behaviour like this and if these people were members of the Party they will be expelled.
"But we have 140 members in Kirklees, 600 people on our mailing list and 21,000 people who voted for us."
The covertly-filmed documentary showed BNP activists confessing to race-hate crimes and party leader Nick Griffin condemning Islam as a "vicious, wicked faith".
