There were concerns after a “To Let” sign saying it was just for a Pakistani family was spotted on a Nelson house.

And it was looked into by both the police and Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson after they received lots of complaints about it.

At the house in Railway Street, Nelson, the landlord had put a hand-written sign up saying “For Rent. 3 Bedrooms. Just Pakistani Family.”

After the complained, the police contacted the landlord and he agreed to take the sign off the window of the house.

Andrew Stepehenson made it clear the man had made a mistake which was “deeply offensive”. He also revealed that it would also be wrong to say both “Whites Only” or “Eastern Europeons only” on a house too.
