Ban racists from social media, anti-Semitism report says

Social media users who spread racial hatred should be banned from sites such as Twitter and Facebook, MPs say.

The All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into anti-Semitism wants prosecutors to examine if prevention orders like those used to restrict sex offenders' internet access could be used.

The cross-party group also highlighted the use of anti-Semitic terms online.

Danny Stone, one of the report's authors and Rabbi Mark Goldsmith from the Alyth Synagogue gave their reactions to the idea to BBC Breakfast.
