Former Conservative chairwoman Baroness Sayeeda Warsi told Sky News that race hate crime organisations had reported some “disturbing early results”.

And she blamed the “divisive and xenophobic” leave campaigning during the EU referendum.

One woman tweeted how her daughter saw a Muslim woman surrounded by a gang of men in Birmingham telling her to “get out, we voted leave”, Sky News reports.
