Numărul atacurilor rasiste asupra românilor înregistrate în Londra s-a cvatruplat de la începutul anului 2013, potrivit Poliţiei Metropoliene. Şi asta deşi, numărul românilor şi bulgarilor e într-o continuă scădere de la începutul anului.

Curbs lifted in January allowed Romanians to freely enter the UK. Although the number of Romanian workers in the UK dropped, more of them are being attacked in the capital.

The number of racially-motivated assaults on Romanians recorded in London has almost quadrupled since the start of 2013, according to data released by the Metropolitan Police.

The number of racially-motivated assaults on Romanians recorded in London has almost quadrupled since the start of 2013, according to data released by the Metropolitan Police.

The number of attacks increased to 11 between January and March 2014, almost double the number (six) in the previous quarter.

In the same period in 2013, there were three racially-motivated attacks against Romanians.
The rise coincides with a period when working restrictions were lifted, allowing both Romanians and Bulgarian nationals to enter the UK. 

Despite this, however, the number of Romanians and Bulgarians in the country has actually decreased since the beginning of the year, according to official figures from the Office for National Statistics.

While there were 144,00 Bulgarians and Romanians working in the UK in the final three months of 2013, the most recent figures suggest this figure has now dropped to 140,000.
