The Conservatives' policy to crack down on illegal traveller sites is nothing to do with racism and all about common sense, Michael Howard has said.

His plans to criminalise trespass by travellers were part of "standing up for the right values", he added.
Mr Howard also claimed the Human Rights Act was making it easier for travellers to abuse planning rules.
Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer said the plans were "madcap" and the Lib Dems accused Mr Howard of "opportunism".
