Delegates from the Sikh Federation in the West Midlands were not allowed to enter the European Parliament because they were wearing kirpans it has been claimed.

LibDem Euro-MP Liz Lynne was supposed to welcome a delegation from the Sikh Federation to the Parliament, but it finished as a protest outside the building when, for the third year running, delegates were not allowed to enter.
