London Mayor Sadiq Khan says Gary Lineker was ‘right’ to criticise small boats plan

London Mayor has said it was “right and proper” for Gary Lineker to criticise the government’s small boats plan.

Sadiq Khan said: “It’s right and proper that Gary Lineker should be able to speak freely about his views on the government’s policies, particularly when their policies are unworkable and immoral.”

BBC confirmed that Match of the Day 2 and coverage of the Women’s Super League match between Manchester United and Chelsea will be reduced Sunday evening, 12 March.

The BBC pulled Gary Lineker off the air after his tweet about the government's small boats legislation led to an impartiality row.
