Russell Rawlingson has been accused of "using threatening/abusive/insulting words/behaviour to cause harassment/alarm/distress" following an incident in which a reporter, Sima Kotecha, and production crew were verbally abused in Leicester city centre on Sunday evening (10).

A man was charged in the United Kingdom on Tuesday after a BBC reporter was subjected to racist abuse as she prepared for a live broadcast.

The 50-year-old, of Glenfield Road in Leicester was bailed to appear at Leicester Crown Court on 15 June. Taking to social media soon after the incident, Kotecha said the racist abuse meant that their filming wasn't able to go ahead.

She was scheduled to interview people on Sunday evening following Boris Johnson's announcement on easing the UK's coronavirus lockdown measures.

Earlier, she had tweeted, "Apologies - however man shouting awful issues at me has ruined it for everybody".

In June 2016, in the aftermath of the European Union referendum, Kotecha said she had been subjected to racist abuse in her hometown. "I'm afraid not going to make it on the special programme", she said on Twitter on Sunday.

The alleged incident was reported to police, who arrested Rawlingson on Monday.

It continued, "We won't tolerate racism or abuse of our workers".
