Answer for Hate Crimes in London

Answered By: 
The Mayor

During the weeks following the Referendum vote I have been receiving daily hate crime reports.  London is an overwhelmingly warm, welcoming and tolerant city and, after a period in which there was an increase (compared to the same period in the previous year) in the number of reported hate crimes, that trend is now coming down.

The table below provides data on the number of hate crimes report to the Metropolitan Police Service in each week during July and August 2016.
