URGENT NEWS RELEASE-MP SLAMS RACIST ABUSE AND CALLS FOR ZERO TOLERANCE

Maria Miller MP for Basingstoke and Chair of the House of Commons Women and Equality Select Committee said in response to todays' report of racist abuse in Basingstoke:"Along with the vast majority of Basingstoke residents I was appalled to hear of the racist abuse suffered by BBC presenter Sima Kotecha in Basingstoke on Monday. I have spoken to Sima to discuss the incident and to categorically condemn it. Racial abuse is a crime and the Police have to act. But as a community we also need to send a clear message as well - racism has no place in our community, we will not tolerate it and to hear of such abuse is sickening. Every one of us has a duty to challenge racism wherever it happens.  If anyone suffers racial abuse they have to feel confident in reporting it to the Police, that their report will be taken seriously and acted upon.
