'Happy Brexit Day' poster telling people to speak English reported to police

The poster has been shared widely on social media since it was first seen.

A poster telling residents of a block of apartments that speaking languages other than English in the building would not be tolerated has been reported to the police.

It is claimed that a copy of the poster was put on the door of every apartment on all 15 floors of Winchester Tower in Norwich.

The posters were found on Friday, the day that the UK officially left the European Union.

The poster reads: "As we finally have our great country back we feel there is one that needs to be made clear to Winchester Tower residents.

"We do not tolerate people speaking other languages than English in the flats.

"We are now our own country again and the Queens (sic) English is the spoken tongue here."

"If you want to speak whatever is the mother tongue of the country you came from then we suggest you return to that place and return your flat to the council."

Norwich City Council took to Twitter to announce that they were aware of the situation, and that they had reported it to the police.

The council said: "We take this very seriously and encourage residents to contact us or the police if they have any concerns".
