Brexit: Heartbreaking moment German woman from Chester phones radio station

This is the heartbreaking moment a German woman who lives in Chester phoned LBC's James O'Brian's show to talk about the abuse she received since last Friday's Brexit vote on the EU Referendum.

From having dog dirt thrown at her door to friends and neighbours telling her they don't want to see her again, Karen gave a harrowing account of how she now feels unwelcome in the country where she made her home.

I haven't been out of the house for three days.

My neighbours told me they don't want me living in this road.

My friend's grandson got beaten up because he had a foreign grandmother.

I'm so scared, I don't know what's going to happen next.

Interim mayor of Greater Manchester Tony Lloyd has said that there has not been an increase of reported race crime in Manchester.

Following reports of racist incidents in other parts of the UK following the EU Referendum result, Greater Manchester’s Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd said:

People across Greater Manchester will condemn racist attacks which have been reported in different parts of the country in the wake of the EU Referendum result.

Greater Manchester Police has not seen an increase in reports of hate crime over the weekend – a reflection of our strong, cohesive, and welcoming communities. However, we must not be complacent and I encourage anyone who has been a victim of hate crime to come forward and report it.

Hate crime has no place in our communities. The overwhelming majority of British people stand together against hatred and prejudice. These acts of racism are not in our name and will not be tolerated.

North West MPs at the centre of unfolding political drama

Four days on from that momentous vote to leave the European Union, and MPs from our region are right at the centre of an unfolding political drama.

Over the last 48 hours, EIGHT North West MPs have left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet - seven of them today. They say the party's got no chance of winning the next General Election with him in charge.
