Self-defence classes over Islamophobia fears

Muslim women in Cardiff have been offered self-defence classes over fears Islamophobia has been "normalised" since Brexit.

Women have reported being shouted at and spat at in the street and new figures show there was a rise in all reported hate crimes after the vote.

A gym in Canton is now offering women-only self-defence classes with a focus on hijab attack prevention.

South Wales Police said hate crime was "never acceptable".
