Communities secretary Eric Pickles has agreed to meet Bradford MPs over the activities of a far right group at Bradford mosques.

Britain First members entered the places of worship on March 10, handing out bibles and urging worshippers to renounce Islam, as well as visiting the Keighley home of the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Khadim Hussain.

Mr Pickles, a former leader of Bradford Council, has agreed to meet the city’s MPs from all parties to discuss what the Government could do to prevent the situation happening again.

The meeting had been called by Bradford West Respect MP George Galloway.
