Rivers of Blood Speech: 50 years on: The sacked Sikh bus driver who fought to wear his turban

In 1967, a Sikh man from Wolverhampton was sacked from his job as a bus driver because he refused to remove his turban and shave his beard. At the time, wearing a turban and driving a bus was against the Wolverhampton transport committee’s regulations. This led to a dispute which ran for over 2 years, during which Enoch Powell delivered his Rivers of Blood speech. 50 years on, Balvinder Sidhu meets Tarsem Singh Sandhu, who started the campaign for change.

‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, 50 years on: The school at the centre of the controversy | ITV News

It’s fifty years since Enoch Powell made his infamous Rivers of Blood speech in Birmingham. All this week we’ve been examining its impact.. Just months after the MP’s controversial words, a new school opened in his Wolverhampton constituency. It had only 25 children who were white. Some parents protested over the ethnic imbalance. It resulted in all the white children being placed in one class. 50 years on Balvinder Sidhu has been to meet the teacher and some pupils of the school.

‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, 50 years on: The truth behind the photo | ITV News

Enoch Powell was famous for his notorious rivers of blood speech but his anti-immigration rhetoric had started much earlier. During a speech at Walsall Town Hall in February 1968 he claimed there was only one white child in the class in a school in Wolverhampton. West Park Primary school came under the media spotlight and a picture of 2 boys, one white and one black, was published to illustrate his point. Balvinder Sidhu has been uncovering the truth behind that picture.

‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, 50 years on: Setting the scene in 1968 | ITV News

Fifty years ago this week the Wolverhampton MP Enoch Powell made his controversial ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech.

Quoting from the Roman poet Virgil, he claimed that Britain’s immigration policy would lead to widespread racial hatred and violence.

The speech presented to a group of Conservative supporters in Birmingham, caused outrage and led to his sacking from the shadow cabinet.

Five decades on, it still provokes strong emotions. In the first of a special series of reports, ITV Central’s Political Correspondent Alison Mackenzie sets the scene in 1968.

A tuberculosis colony’s resistance threatens to spread across the globe | ITV News

ITV News has travelled across the world to report on the growing global threat of the spread of deadly drug-resistant ‘super bugs’.

In the second of our three-part series, we investigate the battle to contain and overcome resistance tuberculosis in South East Asia.

Patients are being treated here for not only TB but resistance TB, their disease having developed to make many strong drugs ineffective.

The disease’s bacterial infection mainly affects the lungs, though it can impact on any part of the body, including the tummy glands, bones and nervous system.

And it’s transmittable, spreading through inhaling tiny droplets from the coughs or sneezes of an infected person.

Without isolation these parents could easily pass it onto family, friends and then far beyond.

It means the people coming to this tiny TB village colony are a very real threat to the world’s ambition to eradicate TB by 2035.

Suspicion over death of journalist Maksim Borodin investigating Russians in Syria | ITV News

Friends of a journalist who investigated Russian mercenaries fighting in Syria have expressed their suspicion over his mysterious death.

Maksim Borodin gained a reputation for exposes and it has been suggested his latest reporting may have led to his death.

Borodin died on April 14 from injuries sustained in a fall from his five-storey balcony in Yekaterinburg, eastern Russia.

The 32-year-old had reported on the death of Russian mercenaries working for the private firm Wagner in Syria. They had been killed in US airstrikes in February 2018.

His death has been ruled as suicide, but questions remain after there were no eyewitnesses and an autopsy report show no trace of alcohol or drugs in his system.

It would not be the first violent death of a journalist in Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

End of an era as the Queen’s last Royal Corgi is put down | ITV News

The Queen has been left saddened by the death of her last corgi, Willow, a 14th generation Royal Corgi.

The dog, who was almost 15, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday after suffering from cancer, according to the Daily Mail’s Richard Kay.

Willows death spells the end of an era for Royal Corgis that was started on the Queen’s 18th birthday in 1944 when her parents gifted her Willow’s ancestor Susan.

During her reign, she has owned more than 30 corgis, many of them direct descendants of Susan, who was so loved that she accompanied Princess Elizabeth on her honeymoon.

The Queen still has two dorgis, corgi-dachshund crosses, but stopped breeding Pembroke Welsh corgis in 2015 when it was reported she was scared of tripping over them.
