University of Leicester in 'biggest' hate crime survey

A survey on hate crime that is described as the biggest in the UK, is being carried out by the University of Leicester.

Researchers have already spoken to more than 1,000 victims about their personal experiences of attacks, verbal abuse and prejudice.

Dr Neil Chakraborti who is leading the study, said it aims to "engage" more "hard-to-reach victims" that can sometimes be overlooked by agencies and community groups.
