I WRITE to express my support for the Evening News in response to the accusations of racism from the chief executive of the Worcester Racial Equality Council.

Having moved to Worcestershire from Birmingham three years ago, I have always been pleased at the balanced open-minded journalism - and letters - one finds in the Evening News, as compared to the bigoted rubbish churned out by what passes for local Press in the West Midlands.

Dr Aslam should back up his remarks or else withdraw them and apologise.

Keep up the good work.
