The Home Secretary has been urged to stop an extreme Hungarian nationalist party from hosting a gathering in London this weekend.

London Assembly member Andrew Dismore has written to Theresa May demanding that Gabor Vona, the leader of the right-wing party Jobbik, is banned from holding the event.

Mr Vona has denied claims by campaign group Hope Not Hate that he is meeting members of Greece's Golden Dawn party - who have openly expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler - and the British National Party (BNP) on Sunday.

Earlier this month, BNP leader Nick Griffin told the Associated Press that his party was likely to forge an alliance with the two parties after the European Parliament elections in in May.
