Former Labour MP Angela Smith criticised over skin colour comment

One of the seven MPs who resigned from the Labour Party on Monday has been criticised over a comment about skin colour.

Angela Smith appeared on BBC Two's Politics Live programme and in a discussion about race, appeared to say: "It's not just about being black or a funny tinge."

The MP has since posted a video on Twitter apologising for the comment, adding: "I am very upset that I misspoke so badly."
