    London is home to the largest Sikh temple outside India. A group of UK parliamentarians have set up a new group to help represent British Sikhs.
    Peers and MPs hope the group will help improve government decisions about issues affecting the Sikh community.

    The All Party Parliamentary Group for UK Sikhs (APPG) will be chaired by Wolverhampton South West MP Rob Marris.

    "The level of interest shown in the APPG from all parties is an excellent sign," he said, adding he hoped women and young people would contribute.

    Mr Marris added that he hoped Gurdwaras and other Sikh organisations would work with the APPG to ensure their views were properly presented to government.
