Holocaust Survivor Ziggy Shipper will be meeting the England football squad tomorrow ahead of their visit to Auschwitz.

He told the Today programme that footballers are role models and can "do a lot" to help combat racism and antisemitism. "People they listen to them more than to me", he said.

"They've got to do so much to persuade people.... it's no use just being bystanders" he told Justin Webb.
