Respect MP George Galloway has been interviewed under caution by police after making a speech in which he announced Bradford was an "Israel-free zone".

The left-wing MP stated in the speech that Israelis were not welcome in the city where he has a constituency.

West Yorkshire Police said it would investigate after footage of the speech, made in Leeds, circulated online.

He has now been interviewed voluntarily and the Crown Prosecution Service will decide whether any charges should follow.
