Griffin has egg on his face

British National Party leader Nick Griffin has been harangued and pelted with eggs as he made an appearance at L107 in Hamilton, Lanarkshire.

Griffin was taking part in a phone-in at the station after raising the country’s ire on the BBC’s Question Time last week. He was on air for an hour at L107 and took eight calls in all.

Speaking to the Daily Record, L107 programme director Derek McIntyre admitted having the BNP head on was “commercial suicide”.

He added: “We have received 50 emails this morning from people withdrawing their support for the station and two or three advertisers have said they are pulling out.

"Nobody is going to benefit from having the BNP on their station but we felt it was right for our listeners to be able to put their points to him and ask questions."
