Racial inequality in Britain is "entrenched and alarming", according to the biggest ever study of its effects. 

A review for the UK's Equality and Human Rights Commission has found that despite decades of effort, ethnic minorities are still more likely to be poor, to be unemployed and to be murdered. 

More black students are earning university degrees, but when they do, their average salary is a staggering 23 percent lower than white graduates. 

The commission says the government needs to come up with a new plan for a fairer Britain.
