Nick Ferrari called on the government to make swastikas illegal to help stop the spread of the far-right.

Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the Klu Klux Klan marched through the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, chanting "blood and soil", saying they wanted to reclaim their country.

While that's in the US, police intelligence sources suggest there is a growing concern over far-right extremists in Britain, as evidenced by the murder of MP Jo Cox by a white supremacist last year.

Nick was shocked to see Hitler salutes on the streets in America and believes there is something simple we can do to contain them.

He said: "You will have seen, if you've been watching any TV coverage, people waving swastikas. Occasionally, you see it in demonstrations here.

"Why don't we just say it's an offence?

"Who in their right mind would want to wave a swastika?

"I know some people are military collectors and that's fine. It seems strange, but if you want to collect daggers with the swastikas on or the SS emblem, that's fine.

"But start taking it to the local high street and waving it around on a Saturday afternoon, I suggest it might be an idea if you get nicked."
