Diane Abbott on Labour's immigration policy

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott says that there were "real issues of disaffection" over immigration in traditionally Labour-voting parts of the country, but the party should not change its position in response.

Asked if UKIP presents a threat to Labour in those areas, the MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington told the World at One it needed to root its policy position in facts, rather than respond to the politics of "the Trump era".
