A Millwall fan dubbed the ‘Lion of London Bridge’ after he fought off Islamic terrorists has been given a 21-day curfew for possessing amphetamines.

Roy Larner, 50, was repeatedly stabbed by Jihadis who killed eight and injured 48 others in London Bridge and Borough Market on 3 June 2017.

He famously roared “f**k you, I’m Millwall” as he fought with the killers.

But Larner was caught with two golf-ball sized packages of amphetamines when searched at Newington Butts in Elephant and Castle on January 21.

He was given a 21-day home curfew between 8pm and 6am as part of a community order for possession of the drugs.

Larner has suffered from PTSD and insomnia since he was stabbed in the terrorist attack, Croydon Magistrates’ Court heard.

District Judge Nigel McClean said: “This offence was aggravated by the fact that there was a more serious quantity involved.

“I’m going to make a stand alone community order of a 21-day curfew, you will be required to be at home from 8pm to 6am daily.”

Larner was spared jail in 2018 after a video emerged of him spitting at a black photographer and shouting abuse in Elephant and Castle.

The Millwall fan then launched into a racist outburst at his local MP’s office in Brixton.

He later admitted racially aggravated common assault and religiously aggravated harassment.

Larner was sentenced to eight weeks, suspended for 12 months, for spitting on the photographer and fined £50 for his abuse at the MP’s office.

He was also banned from visiting his MP’s office for two years.

After the London Bridge attack Larner moved to a caravan site outside Canterbury but was then caught with 230 grams of amphetamine on another occasion and handed a 12-month community order.

Larner was then arrested and taken into custody in March last year after he moved back into his mother’s home.

Larner, of Ledbury Street, Southwark, admitted possession of a class B drug and was sentenced to a 21-day curfew.

Roy Larner became famous when he confronted knife-wielding ISIS terrorists around London’s Borough Market shouting “f**k you, I’m Millwall”

The so-called ‘Lion of London Bridge’ has landed himself in trouble after his caravan was raided by police – unearthing half a pound of drugs.

Roy Larner was one of 48 people injured in terror attacks around Borough Market in June last year, where eight people died.

The 48-year-old bravely confronted knife-wielding attackers, shouting “f**k you, I’m Millwall”, before being hacked with machetes.

Just over a year later – Larner’s caravan was raided by police in Greatstone, Kent – who discovered a haul of amphetamines, weighing 240g.

He pleaded guilty to possessing the drug at Canterbury Crown Court, but denied intending to sell the Class B drug to others.

Larner was released from hospital after 12 days with more than 80 stitches to his head, ear, arms and hands.

His heroism prompted members of the public to donate £50,000 to get the south Londoner back on his feet.

He gained his fame after shouting ‘f*** you, I’m Millwall’ during the 2017 attack as he grappled with Islamic terrorists.

A petition was even set up online to award him the St George’s Cross – with fans praising him around the world.

He will face a one-day trial in February next year and was granted bail until the next hearing.

Richard Lewis Williams, only recently released from prison over a clash with anti-racist protestors, was jailed again for two years after police discovered a cannabis farm

An Anglesey man has been jailed over firearms and drugs offences after police uncovered a cannabis farm.

They found a growing operation, including numerous plants and dangerously overloaded multi-socket adaptors.

Officers from the ongoing Operation Scorpion organised crime crackdown welcomed the two-year prison term given to Richard Lewis Williams, 32, from Bryngwran.

Williams, has only recently been released from a prison term for his part in violent disorder in Kent, where members of his Infidels group clashed with anti-racism protesters.

In 2015, Williams and others were involved in a demonstration in Llangefni, where they protested against mass immigration and the alleged ‘Islamification of Britain’.

Following the sentencing of Williams for drugs and firearms offences, PC David Heptonstall, from Llangefni Police Station, said: “North Wales Police welcome the sentence today at Caernarfon Crown Court. Lewis was a member of an Organised Crime Group in Anglesey and his incarceration will I’m sure bring a sense of relief to many in the local community.

“His sentence is also a message considering a others a life of crime, that we will continue to effectively and robustly target drug dealers. There will be no hiding place on the Island.

“I would urge the public to continue to identify the individuals, movements, locations and details of any drug supplying activity in their area. Working together in our community we can effectively target those who cause the most harm and help keep our communities safe.

“We are determined to effectively target, disrupt and dismantle organised crime groups which operate in North Wales to keep this a safe place to live, work and visit”.

Operation Scorpion has taken down a number of high profile targets in recent years, including major drugs rackets in the North West Wales area.
