Radio station sacks Hopkins over 'Nazi' tweet

By Lucy Mapstone

Controversial broadcaster Katie Hopkins is leaving her presenting role at LBC "immediately", the radio station said.

LBC declined to discuss the reasons for her departure.

Hopkins caused outrage this week after she called for a "final solution" following the terror attack in Manchester, which saw a suicide bomber kill 22 people following a pop concert. After removing her initial tweet - which many considered to be a reference to the Nazi term for the eradication of the Jews during the Second World War - Hopkins posted an amended version.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed it had received complaints about her original tweet on Tuesday.
