Halal butchers is destroyed after thugs throw petrol bomb at it as it emerges race-hate crime soars by 57% days after Britain votes to quit the EU A Muslim halal butchers has been gutted by fire after thugs threw a petrol bomb into the shop just days after Britain voted to leave the EU. It is the UK's latest suspected racist attack and follows the vandalising of a Polish community centre in west London and a BBC news presenter being called a 'P***' in her home town of Basingstoke. Vandals are also said to have targeted every German-made car parked on one London street, scratching Swastikas and other offensive drawings into the bodywork. It follows a 57 per cent rise in race-hate crime since last Thursday's EU referendum. In particular, police have been investigating a number of attacks on Poles and Muslims.  The horrific attack on Kashmir Meat & Poultry butchers in Walsall, West Midlands, happened at 5.25pm yesterday. Police say a 6ft tall white man, who was wearing a blue jacket, walked into the halal butchers and threw a lit bottle of accelerant.
