A 23-year old man, who posted pictures of himself in Ku Klux Klan regalia and hanging a life-sized golliwog doll, has admitted stirring racial hatred.

Christopher Philips – formerly known as Darren Clifft – admitted posting the three videos on YouTube from a March music concert, organised by an extreme right-wing group in West Wales.

Philips from Wolverhampton was arrested later that month following an investigation by the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit. Yesterday he admitted the race offence.

Philips was conditionally bailed to re-appear at court for sentencing on December 19. He was warned a prison sentence is likely.

Philips pleaded not guilty to a second charge of stirring racial hatred which the prosecution will ask to remain on file.

Det Insp Darren Powney said: “We reacted quickly to investigate this matter and bring the offender before the courts.

“We understand how offensive and distressing this type of material can be and urge anyone who has concerns about extremist behaviour of any type to contact the police on 101.”

Extremism on the internet can also be reported to a dedicated counter terrorism police unit by using an anonymous online reporting form, which can be found here: http://www.gov.uk/report-extremism
