A number of small blue stickers - which include the England flag - were on display in Loscoe Road.

They appear to be from a group called “British Movement” and a website for them is stated below the slogan.

One woman, who did not wish to give her name, said: “I wasn’t aware of the stickers. I think they are shocking and upsetting.

“There are people who live here who come from multi-cultural backgrounds so it is shocking to know that they are here and could cause offence.”

Another resident added: “People will protest about anything these days. It’s disgusting, what are they hoping to achieve?

“It’s not a surprise to be honest because there is a big BNP (British National Party) group here.”

A post on the Spotted Heanor Facebook page labelled the stickers as “stupid”.

It read: “Looks like Heanor’s racist side is showing again.

“British movement stickers over every lamp post from Asda to Tesco - ‘stop multiculturalism’.

“Britain is built on multiculturalism instead of taking hours to put stupid stickers up maybe you should spend that time getting an education.”

British Movement has been contacted for comment.
