BNP leader Nick Griffin today bowed out of attending a Buckingham Palace garden party saying he had "no wish to embarrass the queen".

Mr Griffin had been invited to the event by his colleague Richard Barnbrook who, as a London Assembly member, was nominated for two tickets by the Greater London Authority.

It is reported however that the Greater London Authorities's deputy chief executive wrote to Mr Barnbrook telling him to change his choice of guest or his own nomination would be reviewed.

Mr Griffin has now announced that he will not be attending.
