A racism warning has been issued after National Front stickers appeared on lampposts in Camden.
The signs, carrying the words ‘Proud To Be British & White’ have been taken down by Camden Council.
Holborn and St Pancras MP Sir Keir Starmer took to Twitter to call for abuse to stop, writing: “Stop this abuse: Following increased racist incidents since EUReferendum, local concerns should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org”
A council spokesman told the Ham&High: “We removed the stickers as quickly as possible.”
A statement from Camden Council said: “There have been reports of hate crime incidents following the EU referendum last Thursday.
“Hate crime is not necessarily physical violence – it may be verbal abuse, graffiti, racist fly-posting or comments online.
“While we want to reassure residents that the number of these incidents occurring in Camden is low, we have received reports of verbal abuse and fly-posting of racist materials in parts of the borough.
