Religious or Racially Motivated Crimes Reported in 2016

Question

Please provide figures for the number of religious or racially motivated crimes reported between January 2016 and June 2016 (or the most recent data covering a sixth month period). Please provide a breakdown by group targeted and crime committed if possible - I am particularly interested in any crimes against EU migrants.

Answer

In the six months to the end of May, (as your request was received prior to the end of June therefore June was not available), we have recorded 760 hate crimes which have been flagged due to them being motivated by race or religion.
