Hate crime awareness
The fourth annual Hate Crime Awareness week starts today (Monday) in Manchester.
Paralympian gold medallist Adrian Derbyshire OBE is hosting the first event.
The hate crime campaigner suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2008 and lost the use of his legs. In 2012 he went on to win a gold medal in fencing.
Various events will be hosted around the city open to the public with the hope to show how much of a problem hate crimes have become.
