On Friday I visited the new A&E department at Leicester’s Royal Infirmary.

A&E consultant Dr Lee Walker and Geriatrician Dr Richard Wong showed me how they are working to improve care for frail elderly people.

Both have stressed to me the huge importance social care and community services can play in helping people live longer in their own homes and reduce the pressure on our A&Es.

I was appalled and disgusted to hear that letters inciting hate crime and calling for a so-called “Punish a Muslim” day have been circulated in Leicester and Leicestershire – as reported in the Mercury.

I have been in regular contact with the police to ensure everything possible is being done to reassure, support and protect local residents.

I have also been in contact with our local mosques and other representatives from the Muslim community.

And I recently signed a strongly worded statement condemning all forms of hate crime, along with our city councillors, City Mayor Peter Soulsby and Leicester MPs Jon Ashworth and Keith Vaz.
