Shadow immigration minister David Hanson called for an apology after comments made by Ukip councillor Victoria Ayling.

"This type of offensive language should have no place in modern Britain," he said.

"British people do not deserve to be 'sent back home' because this is their home.

"It has taken us years to defeat the ideology and language of the NF [National Front] and the views of the BNP [British National Party] and they should not be resurrected by someone calling themselves a serious politician.

"She needs to apologise and repudiate the use of this type of language and thinking."
