Home Office 'go home' van campaign faces ASA probe

A scheme which saw vans drive through London calling on illegal immigrants to leave is to be investigated by the advertising watchdog.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said it started the inquiry into the Home Office's "go home or face arrest" vans following 60 complaints.

A Home Office spokesman said it was in contact with the ASA and would "respond in due course".

Susana Mendonca reports.
