Police in London are seeing eight times as many Islamophobic attacks in the capital since the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich, a Metropolitan Police chief said today.
Commander Simon Lethford told BBC Radio 4's Today programme police had "definitely seen an increase" in the number of incidents:
We normally have about one Islamophobic crime a day across London, we have seen around eight a day.
Predominantly it's name calling, it's minor criminal damage but on some occasions, like the two arsons we have heard of, there are serious crimes.
