Lincolnshire's hate crime victims get charity support

A charity has been set up in Lincolnshire to help people who have been victims of hate crime.

There are some 300 cases a year where people are abused because of sexuality, disability, or race.

The new service, called Just Lincolnshire, hopes more people will report such incidents to the police.

In addition to plans to raise awareness, the charity also wants to carry out or commission research into equality and diversity issues.
