ITV News seeks Aneela's reaction to verdict of Derek Chauvin for George Floyd's murder

Anti-racism campaigners have been reacting to the verdict in America after a former police officer was convicted of the murder of George Floyd.

In the Scottish Borders, Aneela McKenna helps businesses and other organisations be more inclusive. She says there's now a new hope for a change in attitudes.

Speaking to ITV Border, she said: "It matters to the people in the south of Scotland, but it matters to everyone everywhere.

"You take that quote from George Floyd's daughter that 'daddy changed the world' - daddy really did change the world because now we're talking about racism, we're speaking up and calling it out.
