Sadiq Khan: 'Nigel Farage shows breathtaking ignorance'

Nigel Farage has said his party would scrap much of the legislation designed to prevent racial discrimination in work.

The UKIP leader made the comments as part of a documentary for Channel 4.

Downing Street said his comments were "deeply concerning", while Labour branded them "shocking", but Mr Farage said his remarks had been "wilfully misinterpreted".

Shadow justice secretary, Sadiq Khan, said repealing such laws would allow discrimination on the grounds of skin colour, and that Mr Farage had shown "breathtaking ignorance".
