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.
