She made her comments after a radio interview with BBC Radio Derby. After the event Glass said:
“The comments I made were inappropriate and I regret them. Concerns about immigration are entirely valid and it’s important that politicians engage with them. I apologise to the people living in Sawley for any offence I have caused”.
