Peter Tatchell confronts BNP's Nick Griffin

Help

Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has confronted BNP leader Nick Griffin, calling him a "gutless coward".

Mr. Griffin was emerging from BBC studios at Westminster when Mr. Tatchell approached him and asked him to apologise for what he called the BNP's long history of anti-semitism, homophobia and anti-islamic views.

Two of Mr. Griffin's entourage then grabbed and pushed Mr. Tatchell as the BNP leader left the building.
