Police are investigating whether a man dressed as a monk who delivered homophobic pamphlets in Leicester was the same man who leafleted Hanover in the run up to Brighton Pride.
Leicestershire Police have launched a hate crime investigation after a man dressed in a black robe pushed the leaflet headed “Homosexualism – a few points” through letterboxes in the city.
The leaflets bore a striking similarity to those delivered by hand to houses in Hanover on Wednesday 30 July.
The Brighton and Hove News understands those were also delivered by a man dressed as a monk.
The Leicester Mercury reports a Leicestershire Police spokeswoman as saying: “It has been logged as a crime and is under investigation.
“We are liaising with other forces but it is too early to link it directly to the Cambridge and Brighton incidents.”
