Police are investigating Danny Baker’s tweet about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby that resulted in the broadcaster being sacked by the BBC.

The radio presenter was accused of racism when he posted black and white photo showing a well-dressed man and woman holding hands with a suited chimpanzee after Meghan gave birth.

Baker, 61, later deleted the tweet, admitting it was “ridiculous, stupid and idiotic”, but insisted he is not racist.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman told Sky News: “An allegation has been received by the Metropolitan Police Service on Thursday, 9 May in relation to a tweet published on the 8 May.

“As is routine, the allegation will be reviewed and assessed by specialist officers.”
