Vegan guilty of assault after Canada Goose row

A VEGAN activist who spat at a woman because she was wearing a coat with a fur-lined hood has been sentenced to 150 hours of community service.

Dylan Roffey, 24, faced court after a set-to with Rhiannon Boyle at Brighton Station. Noting Ms Boyle’s £740 Canada Goose coat she said: ‘Do you know you are wearing dog fur?’

Ms Boyle denied it and told her it was none of her business, leading Ms Roffey to spit at her, Brighton magistrates heard.

Ms Roffey denied assault but was found guilty and fined £585 costs plus £150 compensation.
