Controversial broadcaster Katie Hopkins has been axed from LBC


LBC CONFIRMED Katie Hopkins is leaving LBC Radio

"We need a final solution Machester [sic]".

The Metropolitan Police has confirmed that it received complaints about the comments, The Independent reports, although the force has not said whether or not it will launch an investigation.

"As routine, the allegation will be reviewed and assessed why specialist officers".

Staff at LBC reportedly let out "massive cheers and applause" when they were informed their co-worker Katie Hopkins had been sacked.

Politically-outspoken comedian Russell Brand responded to the news of the sacking on Twitter, writing: "Trivial maybe in these hard times but Haty Kopkins banishment is a small, moral victory if not a "final solution".

This isn't the first time Hopkins has gotten into trouble with her employers.

Ferne McCann returns to her TV presenting duties on This Morning
And she has now made her return to her role as a roving reporter on the ITV daytime show, interviewing children for Children's Hospice Week.

"The words that we see and hear all around us today. all have an impact upon us and those around us".

The 42-year-old is known for being an outspoken commentator on far-ranging topics from terrorism and Islam, to children's names and obesity. She commented on the House of Lords by saying, "Frankly, I don't really mind if we seal up the room and gas the lot of them".

LBC declined to discuss the reasons for her departure or whether it was linked to her latest controversy. Last year, MailOnline was forced to pay £150,000 to a family whom Hopkins falsely accused of extremist links after they were refused entry to the USA for a visit to Disenyland, in one of her columns.

In a second deleted tweet, she wrote: "And Ramadan has not yet begun".

Following LBC's announcement she tweeted about her upcoming MailOnline column which she said would address Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and "exchanging dead kids for the terrorist sympathising vote-block". Last month Russell Brand posted footage of himself gatecrashing one of Hopkins' live broadcast.
