A white supremacist has been found guilty of attempted murder after he tried to behead an Asian man in Tesco in the wake of the killing of Lee Rigby.

Zack Davies, 26, could be heard shouting "white power" while he attacked 24-year-old Sarandev Bhambra with a hammer and a machete at the supermarket branch in Mold, Flintshire.

Mold Crown Court heard how Davies had targeted Bhambra as part of a racially motivated revenge attack for the Fusilier, who was murdered by two Muslim convert in the streets on Woolwich, south-east London, in May 2013.

Bhambra's hand was almost severed and he suffered life-changing injuries. The dentist said he may not have survived the attack if it was not for the intervention of former soldier Peter Michael Fuller, who came to his aid and spoke to Davies.

Davies then put his weapons down and stopped his attack before engaging with Fuller until the police came.

Davies said he went out with the intention of attacking his mother's boyfriend but was unable to find him so in a "moment of madness" attacked Bhambra. He said he heard voices that told him to attack the victim.

When questioned by prosecutors earlier in the trial, Davies admitted "I did it for Lee Rigby". Davies also said he was "inspired" by Jihadi John, the Briton who was seen in the Isis beheading propaganda videos.

Davies is due to be sentenced on 11 September.
