A police official in the United Kingdom has claimed that minority communities are taking the law into their own hands.

Chief inspector of the constabulary, Tom Winsor, who is responsible for over-seeing the UK's police force, says there are some 'no-go' areas in the Midlands where officers are never called to investigate crimes.

The claim is disputed by local police and residents alike, who say community groups work closely with the force.
