In response to the shocking rise in hate crimes since the Brexit vote, some people have been spreading their own messages to people who have been made to feel threatened or unwelcome in their hometowns all across Britain.

A sign spotted outside Euston station in London apologises for “all the disgusting racists”. Adding: “They embarrass and hurt the rest of us”:

The picture was posted on the Hope not Hate Facebook page which exists to “counter racism and fascism in elections and beyond”.

And there have been similar messages all across the country, helping to to restore our faith in humanity.

One man, John, wrote to his Polish neighbour Anna Korzepa and the letter was shared on Facebook more than 11,000 times:

In Scotland, Maria found the below note in her building.

She shared it on Facebook with the caption: “This was outside my flat. It’s such a simple yet huge gesture that I’m lost for words. Scotland is full of nice people. Amigos, Escocia está lleno de gente buena. #brexit #ilovescotland”.

The Spanish words mean “Friends, Scotland is full of good people”.
