SCOTS RACISM SHOW AXED.
And ITV's World in Action programme have denied a claim by the S NP that they tried to hire actors to pose as English visitors to test Scottish public reaction.
A spokesman for the programme said: "We started an investigation after reports of anti-Englishness. We have been carrying out research for some time and we have reached the conclusion there is not much of a problem."
Mike Russell, SNP chief executive, said he would still be making a complaint to the Independent Television Commission.
A programme spokesman said claims that actors had been hired to pose as English rugby fans were not correct but he admitted a member of the World in Action team was dressed in an English rugby top for filming purposes.
