Lord Ahmed 'frightened' by white powder hate mail

Muslim peer Lord Ahmed has spoken of the "frightening" moment he was sent an envelope containing white powder.

Counter-terrorism officers are investigating five incidents in which white powder was sent to Muslim centres, mosques and government buildings in London on Thursday.

Lord Ahmed was sent hate mail which contained white powder.

A mosque in Leyton, a Muslim centre in Finsbury Park and another in Tottenham, and a government mail screening centre in Newham all received packages.
