Mayor's mission to make Newham more integrated

The London borough of Newham has the lowest white population in the UK. It is one of the most ethnically diverse areas in Britain.

Its mayor, Robin Wales, is on a mission to make the people more integrated.

Reporter Catrin Nye investigates whether the idea will make the borough more "British" or alienate the people the mayor serves.

This was first broadcast on BBC Newsnight, 19 September 2013
