A BBC Six Nations trailer has been taken down ahead of this weekend's match between Wales and England.

The video asks: "What is good about England?" and shows Welsh men, women and children looking puzzled.

One Wales fan tweeted that the ad is "borderline racism" while others have praised it for sparking interest in the historic rivalry.

It was put up by the BBC Wales' social media team on Wednesday night but was pulled by Thursday.
