Hate crimes rising sharply in England and Wales
When looking at the motivating factors behind these crimes, race is by far the most common - involved in 76 percent of offences. Although only accounting for 2 percent, crimes against transgender people rose dramatically in the last year, seeing a jump of 37 percent - the largest of the recorded factors. All types recorded an increase, and 'sexual orientation' had the second-largest proportional increase, at 25 percent.
