Far-right writer and Holocaust denier David Irving has blamed a mix-up for including Norwich on his speaking tour of Britain.

Mr Irving, 78, is heading to Ipswich and Cambridge for a talk called “My fifty years defending Real History against its enemies”.

According to national newspaper reports, Mr Irving was visiting Norwich as part of that tour but he said today that was a misprint which should have read Ipswich instead.

The venues of his talks are only being revealed to those who buy tickets.

Mr Irving has previously been banned from countries, including Australia, Canada and South Africa, but he overturned his ban on entering Germany using EU freedom of movement rules.

A film called Denial is also being made about a libel case between him and historian Deborah Lipstadt in which he was ruled to be a Holocaust denier.

He has written books about the Nazis disputing historical evidence for the Holocaust.
