National Black Police Association (NBPA) president Tola Munro said forces needed to do more to recruit black and minority ethnic (BME) officers. Figures show 6.3% of police officers in England and Wales are BME, compared to 14% of the population. The Home Office said it was "clear that there is more for forces to do". http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-42702432 Read this New Channel 4 show features celebrities training to become Special Constables out on the mean streets Read this BBC: Pressure on UKIP leader over girlfriend's Meghan Markle's texts Pressure on UKIP leader over girlfriend's Meghan Markle's texts 14 January 2018 Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionHenry Bolton tells the BBC's Daily Politics he did not want the publicity his relationship with a 25-year-old model attractedUKIP leader Henry Bolton is under pressure to resign after his girlfriend was suspended by the party for apparently making racist remarks about Meghan Markle. Jo Marney is said to have apologised for saying Prince Harry's fiancee would "taint" the Royal Family and black people were ugly. Party members are urging Mr Bolton to step aside "quickly" and "quietly". He has not responded but retweeted a message urging him not to quit. Ms Marney, a 25-year-old model, claimed her texts, published by The Mail on Sunday, were taken out of context. Who is new UKIP leader Henry Bolton? UKIP leader in relationship with model 'He must go' One of the party's MEPs said Mr Bolton, 54, should step aside "quickly", calling him a "naive political lightweight" whose personal life was distracting from policy. West Midlands MEP Bill Etheridge said he was not commenting on Mr Bolton's private life but said the party had had "nothing but bad publicity" recently. Skip Twitter post by @Jo_Marney Report End of Twitter post by @Jo_Marney He cited several other complaints including a rise in membership fees, adding that Mr Bolton did not have the "experience or the political nous or the correct advice to deal with the issue that he faces". "He must go, he must go quickly, he must go as quietly as possible," he said. 'Difficult decisions' UKIP activist and former leadership candidate Ben Walker said Mr Bolton should go before he destroyed UKIP's "political family". The party chairman, Paul Oakden, said the leader had "some difficult decisions" to make. "He intends on making those decisions today, and I'm sure whatever he does will be in the best interests of the party," he told BBC's Sunday Politics. Mr Oakden declined to give his own views on Mr Bolton's situation, but said the party needs to be "behind our leader 100% in taking that battle (for Brexit) forward". "Whether or not the party decides it is willing to give that support to Henry is for the party to decide," he said.

When a reply to one of her texts suggested her comments were racist, she added "so what?" and said she did not want other races invading her culture. In a statement to the newspaper, Ms Marney said: "I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used. "The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context. Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused." Mr Bolton earlier replied to a party member online who urged him to call for Ms Marney to have her membership removed. "She has to go or he and @UKIP are doomed if we let this behaviour happen in the party," the teenage activist said. In replying, Mr Bolton tweeted: "Jo was suspended immediately upon us receiving this information." Mr Bolton confirmed his relationship with Ms Marney in a letter to UKIP supporters earlier this month, after splitting up with his wife. He denied he had been involved in a "clandestine affair". Mr Bolton, a former army officer, took over as UKIP leader in September. If he were to quit, it would leave UKIP seeking its fifth leader in 18 months.
