Home secretary David Blunkett has set out his five-step plan to combat racism in modern day Britain.

Mr Blunkett told the Social Market Foundation that it is both 'morally' and 'economically' important to eradicate racial prejudice.

He said class inequality was the foundation of the most visible racism and inequality - 70% of the country's ethnic minority population live in the 88 most deprived council wards.

He called on the individual to take responsibility to root out covert racism and not just rely on the government.

He added: 'Race equality is both a moral and economic imperative. It is not until we realise this that we can fully achieve race equality.'
