An immigrant's tale: Leaving Britain to escape Brexit hostility
Maria, a 31-year-old mother of two, said she was now preparing to leave Britain later this year with her husband and two children, fed up with what she described as xenophobia, as well as the rising cost of living in London. Official figures show hate crime in Britain surged to a record level last year, up by almost a fifth, with the Brexit vote cited as a significant factor.
