A drunken reveller has been fined more than £700 after pleading guilty to racially abusing a petrol station attendant.

Nigel Reilly, of Croham Road, South Croydon, insulted BP garage worker Ehasan Ullah’s mother before launching into a racially-motivated tirade.

The 29-year-old had been out drinking with friends on December 21 when he stopped at the garage, in Carshalton Road, Sutton, to buy cigarettes.

But when Mr Ullah refused to serve him, Reilly began shaking and banging the shop’s door.

He then insulted Mr Ullah’s mother and said she had “big boobs and big bum”.

Still the BP employee refused to serve him so Reilly, who admitted to having a Muslim girlfriend, turned his attentions to Mr Ullah’s religion.

He said: “Ooh Allah, ooh Allah. Allah sees you selling cigarettes and alcohol. Allah sees you and Allah’s angry with you.”

Reilly was fined £580 but must also pay courts costs of £85, a victim surcharge of £15 and compensation to Mr Ullah of £50.

The father-of-two told magistrates: ”I’m terribly embarrassed and sorry. No one deserves that treatment. I’m proud of our multi-cultural society.

“The problem was my friends and I had been insulting each others mother’s all night and it must’ve just carried on.”
