More than half of Brits want full face veil banned
British people are broadly opposed to the niqab - the full-face veil which shows only the wearer's eyes - being worn in any public place, exclusive research for Channel 4 News reveals.
An exclusive ComRes poll for Channel 4 News showed that more than half of the public believe women should not be allowed to wear the niqab in public - with 55 per cent backing an outright ban similar to the one in France.
An even greater proportion, 81 per cent, say they support a ban on wearing the niqab in certain public places, such as schools, courts or hospitals.
