Police in Cambridgeshire are investigating suspected post-referendum racism after abusive notes were allegedly posted through letterboxes of Polish people.

Some Poles living in Huntingdon apparently received laminated cards reading 'Leave the EU - no more Polish Vermin.'

Inspector Nick Percival said the police were "aware" of the incident and were investigating.

He urged anyone with information about the source of the notes to contact the police.

The area voted by 54 per cent to 46 in favour of quitting the European Union.

Luton-based travel company TUI has responded to Britain's decision to leave the EU by saying that it is 'barley conceivable' to imagine Europe without the UK.

The Leave campaign won by a 51.9% majority overnight.

CEO Fritz Jouseen admitted he was shocked by the decision but has backed his company to get through a period of uncertainty.

The EU without the UK is barely conceivable but we respect the democratic decision of the British people and trust the UK government will take all steps necessary to ensure economic and political stability and to ensure that British holidaymakers will not be affected by the UK's decision to leave the EU.

We are well prepared and confident that TUI Group as a truly global company will not be significantly affected by the decision.

It remains to be seen how the decision will affect consumer sentiment.

– Fritz Joussen, TUI CEO
