KENT NEWS: A former royal porter convicted of taking part in riots in Thailand will be deported back to Britain within days.

Jeff Savage, 48, who is originally from Tonbridge, was filmed inciting people to burn down a shopping centre in Bangkok in May after the Thai army killed 59 anti-government protestors, who are known as the Red Shirts, in violent clashes.

He was arrested days after the country’s biggest shopping mall Central Plaza was burned to the ground and looted.

After pleading guilty to breaching an emergency decree imposed to halt the riots, Savage was jailed for three months.
