A Pole was stabbed in the neck with part of a bottle in the British town of Telford on Thursday night, spokesman for the Polish FM Rafał Sobczak told Polish Radio's news agency IAR.

The 21-year-old man suffered a cut to his neck and was taken to a local hospital to be later discharged.

According to British media, the Pole was approached by a group of three men, after they heard him speaking Polish.

The incident is treated as a "racially aggravated hate crime."

Several such crimes have targeted Polish people in recent weeks in the aftermath of the UK's decision to leave the EU. (ał)
