TWO webchats are being held by Sussex police during Hate Crime Awareness Week.

Sgt Peter Allan said: ‘If you have been subjected to behaviour that makes you feel sad, hurt, upset, nervous or vulnerable and that you were targeted because of your disability, sexual orientation, faith or religion, race or gender identity rather than the person across the street, then you should report it to the police.’

The first chat runs from 12.30pm to 1.30pm on Thursday at /whats-happening/hate-crime-awareness-week.

The second web chat will be held at /whats-happening/hate-crime-awareness-week-2 from 7.30pm to 9pm next Friday.
