Sadiq Khan, mayor of London, encouraged social media users to play their part in tackling online hate.

The former minister, who has Pakistani heritage, said: "I've seen first-hand the online hate when social media is hijacked by hateful and cynical users who usually hide behind anonymous accounts.
