Police ‘illegally’ stopping white people to racially balance stop-and-search figures, watchdog claims

Police are making unjustified and ‘almost certainly’ illegal searches of white people to provide ‘racial balance’ to Government figures.

Lord Carlile, the independent reviewer of terror laws, said he knew of cases where suspects were stopped by officers even though there was no evidence against them.

Staff will be given ‘mandatory cultural awareness’ training so they can fully understand what it is like to be a traveller or gipsy.

The guidelines have been introduced because, under race laws, gipsies and travellers are defined as minority ethnic groups and the NHS is obliged to consider their special needs and circumstances.
