Immigrants are being told to go home, rather forcefully with hate mail being sent as evidence stands that post-Brexit racism has spread across the streets of the UK.

Former Conservative Chairwoman Baroness Warsi said that: “Race hate crime organisations have reported some disturbing early results.”

She blamed the “divisive and xenophobic” leave campaigning in the EU referendum.

Boris Johnson, the chief figure of the Leave campaign, addressed EU migrants’ qualms and concerns.

He said: “There has been a lot of confusion over the weekend – the status of people living in this country. It is absolutely clear that people from other European countries who are living here, have their rights protected.

“All that people want to see is a system that’s fair, impartial and humane to all people coming from around the world.”

However, police are currently investigating a statement of an “alleged racially-motivated” attack on a Polish community building in London in addition to hate notes being posted through the doors of Polish residents in Cambridgeshire.

Post-Brexit racism has also been posted on social media.

One women tweeted that her daughter saw a Muslim women fenced in by a gang of men in Birmingham who were telling her to “get out, we voted leave”.

Lady Warsi said she wanted leave campaigners to: “Come out and say that the campaigning was divisive and was xenophobic and give a commitment that future campaigning and the way that they intend to run this country will be united, will make people from all backgrounds feel like they belong.”

She added: “I’ve spent most of the weekend talking to organisations, individuals and activists who work in the area of race hate crime, who monitor hate crime, and they have shown some really disturbing early results from people being stopped in the street and saying look, we voted Leave, it’s time for you to leave.

“And they are saying this to individuals and families who have been here for three, four, five generations. The atmosphere on the street is not good.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that graffiti had been sprayed on the doors of the Polish Social and Cultural Association in Hammersmith, West London.

A spokesman said: “We were informed of an incident of alleged racially-motivated criminal damage to a building in King Street.

“Officers attended and enquiries are ongoing.”

Cambridgeshire Police are inspecting the laminated cards that were being sent through doors in Huntingdon carrying the message: “Leave the EU – no more Polish vermin.”

Nigel Farage was severely attacked for his “Breaking Point” poster during the campaigning, which showed a queue of refugees in Europe, saying the UK needed to take control of its borders.

This is the reason why Lady Warsi proclaimed her support for the Remain campaign, rather than backing Leave.
