Hearing a lot of complaints about a lack of housing in Northfield and the surrounding area. Some public sector workers are telling us this is creating real animosity toward migrants. 'People are saying, "we need to look after our own first,"' one person told us, 'There's a lot of anger and frustration... and a feeling of entitlement not being met'.

Anyone else experienced/heard about new migrant families suffering from abuse in Northfield? We've heard a few cases now of people telling us that new Polish, Romanian, and Afghan families in the area have had abuse shouted at them in the street and in one case had their house pelted with eggs. Wouldn't be right to name the exact locations here, but we know the streets and will let West Mids Police know.
