The BBC has withdrawn an educational film about immigration following complaints that it was biased.
The film, aimed at GCSE pupils, contained claims that Britain was 'multicultural long before curry and carnival' and that debate over immigration had fuelled a 'huge rise' in support for far-Right politics.
It was pulled from circulation and removed from YouTube after complaints that it broke impartiality rules.
