Answered By: 
The Mayor

All 23 Islamophobic hate crimes recorded on June 6th 2017 are classified as crimes.  Investigations are ongoing and it is too early to establish how many of those 23 will result in prosecution. 

Two further Islamophobic incidents reported on June 6th 2017 were not classified as offences and are treated as incidents.
