British transport police have launched an campaign against hate crimes on their services. 76 were recorded on the rail network in the North West since January.
Officers will be at key stations across the region talking to passengers, rail staff and members of the public about the #WeStandTogether campaign, an initiative designed to stamp out hate crime and hate incidents on public transport. They will also be talking about they tackle hate crime and support victims, and will be providing practical advice on what you should do if you are a victim or a witness.

- Manchester 39
