7pm: A national anti race-hate group is holding a meeting about now at a secret venue in Spalding.

Hope Not Hate says it was invited to the town and is speaking to around a dozen supporters at a private, family house.

In May, the group published screen-grabs of alleged racist comments on the Facebook pages of three UKIP county councillors, including Spalding South ward member Alan Jesson.

Coun Jesson has said the comments were not posted by him or his council colleagues and their Facebook accounts were hacked.
