Officials at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London have said they are "shocked and deeply concerned" following xenophobic abuse directed against its community in London and the UK.
We are shocked and deeply concerned by the recent incidents of xenophobic abuse directed against the Polish community and other UK residents of migrant heritage.
The Polish Embassy is in contact with relevant institutions, and local police are already investigating the two most widely reported cases in Hammersmith, London, and Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
At the same time, we would like to thank for all the messages of support and solidarity with the Polish community expressed by the British public.
We call on all Polish nationals who fall victim of xenophobic abuse and on all witnesses to report such incidents to local authorities.
