The Pink Paper is reporting on an academic study into hate crime in Brighton and Hove. According to the report 73 per cent of respondents had experienced abuse because of their sexuality in the past five years. And 79 per cent said the abuse came from a stranger. Only 55 per cent reported abuse to the police, while seven per cent registered incidents to the Community Safety Team. Of those who did report the hate crime, a third described the response as “poor”. The story can be read at: http://www.pinkpaper.com/pinkpaper/story.asp?aid=354
