One woman said she and her family have left the capital after they were attacked in their home. Erzsebet Trautman, 49, moved from Hungary to London three years ago. But a month ago, she left her flat in Camden and returned to Budapest fearing for her safety.
Another woman, who only gave her name as Nancy, had been living on a south London estate for years with her husband and children after moving to the UK from Spain. But since June 24, the day after the Brexit vote, she has been living in fear after being cornered by three men who racially abused her.
“They started to be really aggressive,” she said. “I can’t even describe it, it’s something that you feel in your heart.”
