Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be banned from entering the UK.
It follows the Republican frontrunner's call for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on".
Mr Trump's comments were designed to capitalise on a shooting by a radicalised couple in San Bernardino, California, that killed 14 people.
But they have drawn condemnation both at home and abroad.
In the UK, almost 30,000 people have signed a petition calling on MPs to impose a bar on Mr Trump.
