Ex-England cricket captain Michael Vaughan under fire after tweeting ‘Not many English people live in London’

FORMER England cricket captain Michael Vaughan faced a Twitter row last night for posting: “Not many English people live in London. I need to learn a new language.”

Fiyaz Mughal, of Faith Matters, said: “This is an unfortunate comment as people from diverse communities are fully integrated as British people.”

A year earlier Vaughan was said to have told his ex Yorkshire team-mate, Azeem Rafiq, and two other Asian cricketers, there are “too many of you lot.

“We need to do something about it”.

A report found Rafiq, 30, was racially abused at the club but no action was taken.

Yesterday Rafiq’s family joined a Stump out Racism protest at Headingley, Yorkshire CC’s home.
