HSBC bank has told three Muslim organisations that they are to have their accounts closed.

One of the organisations believes its stance on Gaza may have triggered the move.

Another, the Finsbury Park Mosque in North London, says that the move is "islamophobic".

HSBC has not given any specific reason for its actions but says that the organisations fall "outside their risk appetite".

Dominic Laurie reports.
