A pensioner claims his Asian councillor branded him ‘Islamophobic’ after objecting to plans for a mosque and Islamic community centre on greenbelt land near his home.

Maurice Rushby, 67, said he raised ‘legitimate concerns’ about proposals for the 20,000 sq ft, £2million building on a former farmer’s field – but was accused of racism when he asked how it could be opposed.
