A FORMER police inspector from East Morton and founder of the One Britain One Nation campaign has been shortlisted for an award.

Kash Singh is a finalist in the Indian Man of the Year category of the sixth annual British Indian Awards 2018, which celebrate and promote the contributions of the British Indian community to a successful and prosperous United Kingdom.

He said: “I am honoured and humbled by the thought that my name has appeared in this category, but what excites me is the fact that the work of One Britain One Nation (OBON) is being talked about across the nation in a very positive light”

The black tie awards will be held at the Athena, in Leicester, on June 21.

Mr Singh, who served as a senior West Yorkshire Police officer, has been shortlisted into the finals due to nominations received by the awards organisers.

OBON, which he founded in 2012, promotes patriotic events to unite people of all ethnic backgrounds in order to combat social segregation.
