Katie Hopkins has been temporarily locked out of her Twitter account after anti-hate campaigners called for her to be removed from the site.

A group of campaigners including Countdown host Rachel Riley said it met with representatives from the social network on Wednesday and urged them to carry out a “full review” of her account, which has 1.1 million followers.

Her account has now been locked for violating the site’s hateful conduct policy. Although the account is still in existence, all of her tweets have been deleted, apart from one retweet in which she was accused of inciting racial hatred towards rapper Stormzy.

It read: “If Katie Hopkins’ latest tweets on Stormzy don’t constitute incitement to racial hatred I really don’t know what does. She is a criminal. @Twitter needs to act”.
