Welsh language tweet not appropriate, commissioner says

BBC Radio Five Live has apologised for a tweet asking someone to speak about "why the Welsh language should die" on air.

Welsh language commissioner Meri Huws said it was not appropriate and in other contexts it "would definitely be considered racist".

It was sent by a BBC Radio Five live researcher to a specific person asking them to appear on a show on Monday.

The station apologised for the tweet, that has since been removed, and said it was for a "broad discussion about non-English languages".
