A Tory MP has been accused of Islamophobia over a now-deleted tweet he posted about Sadiq Khan.
Michael Fabricant posted a cartoon showing the Mayor of London’s head on an inflatable balloon, engaged in a sex act with a pig.
Mr Fabricant has apologised, saying he “stupidly tweeted it in a meeting without checking it properly”.
Sadiq Khan is a Muslim, and eating pork is a sin in Islam. Pork has previously been used in Islamophobic attacks.
