Celebrating Lewisham diversity following Brexit hate crime rise

The impact of the EU referendum on community relations was the focus of an event in Catford.

Politicians, religious leaders and people living in the south-east London borough gathered at Lewisham Town Hall to discuss the rise in hate crimes reported to police since the vote in June.

The 'Unity in Lewisham' event was organised by EqualiTeam Lewisham which hopes to encourage more people to report racist and xenophobic incidents to police.
