Racists axe black teenager to death

Are the Brits reverting to their Barbarian roots?

A gang of men who murdered a black teenager with an axe in an unprovoked racist attack in a park near his home in Huyton, Liverpool, were being hunted by police last night.

Anthony Walker, an 18-year-old sixth form college student, was killed by a single blow delivered with such force that the axe was left embedded in his forehead.

Just minutes before the attack the teenager, his girlfriend and his cousin had been subjected to a 'torrent of racial abuse' by a man in a hooded top.

Detective Chief Superintendent Peter Currie, who is leading the inquiry, said Anthony had spent the evening at home with his girlfriend, who is white and a fellow student at college in Huyton.
