Emerson: I will apologise to Birmingham as long as I live

Fox News contributor Steven Emerson has said he will apologise to the people of Birmingham "for as long as he lives" for falsely claiming the city was a "no-go" city for non-Muslims.

Mr Emerson, who said he is a self-employed terrorism analyst, sparked outrage when he told a Fox News segment that Birmingham was "a totally Muslim city where non-Muslims simply don't go in".

He told ITV News that he has now made a £500 donation to the cancer ward at Birmingham Children's Hospital by way of apology to people in the city.

He had been talking about so-called Islamification in Europe and "no-go" areas when he identified Birmingham.

It was a mistake that was inexcusable, and I apologise, and I will continue to apologise to every resident of Birmingham as long as I live.
