Transphobic crime up 25% in London, Met says

There has been a 25% increase in hate crimes against transgender people, according to figures released by the Met Police.

In the year to October 2015, 135 transgender hate offences were recorded, compared with 108 last year.

The Met believes the rise is partly explained by more people reporting such crimes, and is urging any victims of transphobia to come forward.

Charlie Craggs spoke to the BBC about her experience.
