A resident of Eastwood near Southend in Essex has told Southend News Network that he has submitted a formal complaint to the local council to demand the immediate removal of a number of ‘racist’ England flags in the area. 

The local community has come together to fly as many of the flags as possible from lamp posts, but Gerald Fuch-Weet feels that the flags are ‘incredibly offensive.’

He said, ‘Most of the flag is white, and how do you think a black person feels when they see the flag?’

’They can’t even have their own flag because the only black flag that anyone has heard of is the one ISIS uses.’

‘I am so upset by this that I think I will launch a lawsuit against everyone in Eastwood for psychological damages. Freddy Eastwood as well.’
