A Holocaust denier, who dismissed the horrors of Auschwitz by suggesting inmates could go swimming and raise complaints to the commandant, has been expelled from Labour - 18 months after he was suspended.

Chris Crookes, a member of Labour International for party members living abroad, was allegedly first reported to the party's compliance unit in 2016, for an article he wrote in 2012 entitled "The Human Face of Holocaust Revisionism".

He included the ideas that prisoners at Auschwitz enjoyed access to a swimming pool and cinema, that not a single infant died there and that the camp's commandant Rudolf Hoss “had a standing order that any inmate could approach him personally to register a complaint about other inmates…or even guards.”

Mr Crookes described the Holocaust in his piece as "a mythology that is taboo, that cannot be questioned in nations throughout Europe under penalty of prosecution and imprisonment...a widespread and accepted mythology that demonizes the Germans unfairly."

In reality, more than a million people were murdered at Auschwitz. Though there was a swimming pool, this was for the guards, not prisoners.
