Taxi customers 'request white drivers' in Rochdale

The manager of a cab firm in Rochdale has said that a small number of the company's customers are requesting white drivers, following the rise of the so-called Islamic State in the Middle East.

The company says the trend began in 2012, after a group of men, most of them of Pakistani origin, were given prison sentences for grooming vulnerable white girls from the town.

Judith Moritz reports from Rochdale.
