Designer John Galliano 'relieved' after Paris trial

John Galliano is said to be "relieved" and looking "to put all of this behind him" after being given two suspended fines for an anti-Semitic rant in a Paris restaurant.

The designer, fired by the Dior fashion house over the incident, said he had no recollection of the events and denied being racist.

Galliano apologised for his behaviour at a one-day trial in June.

Speaking outside court, lawyer Aurelien Hamelle said that the court had taken his client's regret at the incident into account when imposing the sentence.
