It has been reported by the West Midlands police that hate letters, believed to be part of a national series, have continued to be received within the West Midlands. The content of these letters are identical and are derogative towards the Muslim community and police officers. In addition, two of these letters have contained a white powder substance. 

Members of the public who receive such letters are to contact the police as a matter of urgency. The ‘Remove, Remove, Remove’ advice should be given to members of the public who report a white powder incident as per the below guidelines:

  • Keep the number of people who handle the letter and the envelope to a minimum – this is to allow Police the best chance to identify the sender through the use of forensic techniques and minimise the risk of harm.
  • Place the letter and the envelope in a clean plastic bag or similar (a sandwich bag or freezer bag for example) as this will stop further contamination
  • Call the local Police and inform them, they will assess what you have received and know the procedure to follow, whether the letter is part of this series or not
