A Hackney councillor has told for the first time how he feared for his family’s safety when an image of his house marked out as a rifle target was posted by an online stalker
Luke Akehurst (Chatham, Labour) said the hate website set up to criticise him got out of control and he found it “very creepy”.
The blog, written by an impostor pretending to be the councillor, included modified images and mocking accounts of the 37-year-old’s efforts in the council.
