The Tower Hamlets race row began to engulf the Liberal Democrat leadership last night with local councillors rejecting the party's findings that local leaflets pandered to racism, the Guardian reports (p1).

The paper says that the LibDem group met for five hours called on Paddy Ashdown to reconsider his suitability to head the party and declared Simon Hugbes, Southwark and Bermondsey LibDem MP 'persona non grata'.

A statement said that the councillors would support any group member who resigned from the party as a matter of consicence and they would continue to receive group support and be welcomed as members of the LibDem group until next May's elections, the paper reports.
