image for BNP members complain of press intrusion
Crowds of journalists outside a BNP member's home.

Members of the British National Party have complained of harassment from journalists who keep phoning and emailing them asking if they are being harassed.

Jim from Glasgow said he had received 20 phone calls from Fleet Street and local news media, and five journalists had knocked on his front door. "They all wanted to know if I was suffering harassment since the BNP membership list was published on the Internet," he told us when we visited him.

Maud from Middlesex also informed our journalist, on the doorstep of her bungalow, that she was being subjected to a torrent of request from journalists to talk about how she was being harassed.

"I daren't go out," she said, "there are loads of people out there waiting to interview me. If they all went away I would be able to say that I wasn't being harassed at all, but ironically I would then have no one to tell."

We also managed to speak to a BNP member in Northern Ireland to ask if they had been threatened by any republicans. We couldn't get through on the phone and the email account wasn't working, so we sent a camera crew round to the house.

When we got there, there was a mob outside Mr Finney's home, all trying to get to the front door. We were unable to speak to him, despite shouting at the top of our voice, and even climbing up on his roof.
