The Leader of Charnwood Borough Council, Cllr Jonathan Morgan, has issued a statement reinforcing the Council's position that it will not tolerate racism or discrimination.
Cllr Morgan said: “Our aim for Charnwood is to create a place where people treat each other with dignity and respect.
“As a Council, we do not tolerate racism, or any discrimination, in any form. We are proud of our diverse communities in Charnwood and believe our differences should be recognised and celebrated.
“The global events of the past few weeks have caused anger around the world. Sadly, racism is still a problem and that’s why it is important we stand together, talk about the issues we face and work together to combat unacceptable views and behaviours that have no place in our society.”
