Magistrate sacked after posting 'provocative and racist' material online

A MAGISTRATE has been sacked for posting racist material online.

The Lord Chancellor and Lord Chief Justice fired Eric Murphy after he “posted and shared material of an inappropriately provocative and racist nature”.

Security firm boss Murphy got a misconduct warning last year for making “inappropriate” remarks to colleagues.

He was also “seen to have his eyes closed” during a case and “risked undermining the reputation” of magistrates.

Murphy, fired from the Carmarthenshire Bench, has denied being racist.

He told The Sun on Sunday he will appeal — adding: “I didn’t generate the material but I admit I shared it.”
