Galliano found guilty of anti-Semitic insults

British fashion designer John Galliano, has been found guilty of anti-Semitic insults and handed suspended fines totalling 6,000 euros (£5,250; $8,400).

The designer, fired by the Dior fashion house over the affair, admitted the insults but said he had no recollection of the two events and denied being racist.

Galliano apologised for his behaviour at a one-day trial in June and blamed drug and alcohol addictions for his outburst.
