A WORCESTER born TV presenter has spoken out after Twitter said the racist tweets aimed at him didn't violate their community guidelines.

BBC reporter Gavin Ramjaun, 29, said he was 'disgusted' that Twitter has decided not to take any action.

The offensive tweet called Mr Ramjuan a 'curry muncher aborigine,' said he was 'letting the Indians down' and told him to 'cut your damn hair and choose your wardrobe with a stylist'.

The journalist, born in Worcester and whose parents come from Mauritius, reported the message to Twitter but the social media site ruled that the message did not violate their rules.

But the social media platform said after 'reviewing the available information' they didn't find a 'violation of their rules in the content'.

Mr Ramjuan tweeted a photo of the response on September 15 with a statement that read: "?! Seriously. Have a long hard look at yourselves for allowing this cretinous behaviour. Disgusted. Good to see racial abuse is tolerated on your platform."

Mr Ramjaun launched his broadcasting career on Newsround in 2007 and also reported for its spin-off show Sportsround.

He joined BBC News and BBC Breakfast in 2009 where he made special reports for the early morning show.

In 2010 he was part of the BBC Sport team reporting on the Winter Olympics taking place in Vancouver, Canada.

On 6 September 2010, Ramjaun joined ITV’s newly launched Daybreak as a news correspondent and in December the following year he became a sports correspondent.

He still works with ITV and the BBC and Sky Sports on projects.
