Northamptonshire Police are urging people to report so called hate crimes.
Hate crimes are when people are targetted because of things like their race, religion or sexuality.
Nationally, there`s been a 57 per cent increase in reported incidents compared to the same time last month but there hasn’t been a rise locally following the EU referendum.
Anyone who has experienced or witnessed a hate crime can contact police on 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or use the True Vision website (report-it.org.uk). Always call 999 in an emergency.
