Ed Miliband describes Starkey race comment 'disgusting'

Labour leader Ed Miliband has given his reaction to a comment on race made my historian David Starkey, describing it as disgusting and outrageous.

Mr Starkey told BBC Two's Newsnight "whites have become black" after four days of rioting across England.

Mr Miliband's reaction came after he was asked to 'stamp the comment out' by a member of the audience during a speech about last week's rioting.
