Labour MP Dawn Butler accuses Met Police of racially profiling after they stopped her driving throug

Labour's Dawn Butler has accused the police of racially profiling her after she was pulled over while driving in East London.

The MP for Brent Central filmed her heated confrontation in Hackney with two officers, who she claims demanded to know what was in the back of car.

After being left 'irritated and angry', she has branded the Metropolitan Police 'institutionally racist'.

She said: 'We were two black people in a car, driving through Hackney, and they thought they'll stop us.

'You can drive anywhere you want to. I mean we don't have a police state that says you're not allowed to drive from Brent to Hackney or from Chingford to Brent, you can drive anywhere you want.'

Ms Butler – who in 2015 became the third black woman to be elected an MP after Diane Abbott and Oona King - only yesterday called on Scotland Yard commissioner Cressida Dick to resign for failing to stamp out racism.

My view: I don't believe she was racially profiled, she's not above the law. Dawn Butler should do something about some young black men stabbing each other.
