  • Ethnic minorities face discrimination in the countryside, a rural charity has said after a row over a Countryfile segment about BAME access.
  • The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) defended the programme after Scout Ambassador Dwayne Fields presented a section about perceptions by ethnic minorities of the countryside.
  • CPRE agreed, writing on Twitter: “Thought-provoking, challenging and important segment on Countryfile tonight, as Dwayne Fields investigates the challenges facing members of the BAME community living in the countryside.”
