BNP leader Nick Griffin has attacked distinguished former generals who had criticised "extremists" for hijacking military symbols.

Mr Griffin was reported on the BNP's website comparing Generals Sir Mike Jackson and Sir Richard Dannatt to Nazi war criminals hanged after the Nuremberg trials.

He later told the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson it had been "black humour" and he was not being serious.
