BBC London journalist Warren Nettleford talks about his British identity. Coming from a small town and being quite aware of his Jamaican heritage, Warren says that the Olympics reminded him that, no matter how different you are in some respects, a shared British culture of things like books, music and food, gives us common identity.

“I was born in Dudley in the West Midlands, but at the same time I’m very conscious of my heritage: my mothers from Jamaica and I’m very conscious of that.”

“You can have different aspirations and ideas of what it is to be British, but we are united by having a common culture, a common sense of identity in terms of music and books and politics,” he says.
