Campaigners push to get more BAME voters to the polling station

The campaign group Operation Black Vote, which works to increase the diversity of the British electorate, says almost half of the top two hundred marginal seats have enough minority voters to trigger a swing from 2015.

At least eleven constituencies in the capital fall into this category.

Simon Woolley is the Director of OBV and spoke to Anthony Baxter about the campaign.
