A conference is being held in Berkshire to address what organisers say is continued prejudice against Sikhs after the 9/11 and 7/7 terrorist attacks.

Jagdeesh Singh, from the Sikh Community Action Network in Slough, said he had been punched and verbally abused twice because of his turban and beard.

Slough MP Fiona McTaggart will talk at Wednesday's event, during which a film called Turbanology will be shown.

The Met Police recorded more attacks on Sikhs after the London and US attacks.
