The sister of Alice Gross has criticised the BBC's Question Time programme over a discussion about immigration related to Alice's murder.
Nina Gross wrote on Twitter:
#bbcqt extremely insensitive to use the loss of our sister for political agendas. In future, please respect our wishes as we grieve
The show's panel had discussed whether criminals should be allowed to move freely across European borders, a reference to Latvian builder Arnis Zalkalns, a suspect in Alice's murder.
The official BBC Question Time account replied:
@grossnina Dear Nina, we're sorry to hear this. We're really sorry for any hurt or offence caused by tonight's programme
Nina, 19, thanked the BBC for the apology.
