‘We will simply not tolerate hate crime,’ say police

An anti-hate crime campaign has proved a hit for city police.

Officers manned a pitch outside the civic offices targeting a different hate crime each day this week.

They covered race hate, homophobia, disability, transphobia and religion.

The initiative was designed to show the intolerance of police towards crimes against these groups, as well as to encourage victims to come forward.
