Labour MP and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s grand-daughter Tulip Siddiq said Donald Trump is not welcome in the UK following his anti-Muslim comments.

Tulip Siddiq, MP for Hampstead and Kilburn, also called for  Trump to be banned from the UK after he claimed that parts of London were "so radicalised" that police were "afraid for their own lives".

"I would say to him you are not welcome in our country in the same way that you want to ban people like me going into your country," Ms Siddiq told BBC Radio London.

"I don't think we need someone poisonous like Donald Trump in our capital city that we are so proud to live in, and in our country."

Trump's comments about the UK capital previously led to London Mayor Boris Johnson saying "the only reason I wouldn't go to some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump".

He added: "Donald Trump's ill-informed comments are complete and utter nonsense.

"As a city where more than 300 languages are spoken, London has a proud history of tolerance and diversity and to suggest there are areas where police officers cannot go because of radicalisation is simply ridiculous."
