BNP's Nick Griffin refused entry to Buckingham Palace

BNP leader Nick Griffin has had a Buckingham Palace garden party invitation revoked over claims he "overtly" used the invite for political purposes.

Mr Griffin had asked BNP supporters for questions they would like him to ask the Queen, as well as appearing on GMTV to talk about the invite.

A Palace spokesman said his behaviour had "increased the security threat and the potential discomfort" to other guests.
