British media outlet the Guardian has apologised after a cartoon depicting BBC chairman Richard Sharp was criticised as antisemitic.

It depicted Sharp, who is Jewish, with exaggerated features and carrying a puppet of Rishi Sunak.

One Jewish group said it "falls squarely into an antisemitic tradition".
