A race hate crime happens every three hours in Northern Ireland

The number of incidents increased by a third, with assaults and threats to kill among the offences.

The PSNI says increased confidence in the force may have encouraged victims to report the problem, but that further work is required.

Compared with the previous year there were increases across all but one of the six hate incident types recorded in 2014/15 – racist incidents increased by 374 from 982 to 1,356 and racist crimes increased by 230 from 691 to 921.
