As much as 12 percent of Poles living in the UK said they were a victim of racial attacks, mainly verbal abuse, after the Brexit referendum and 74 percent of them fear negative attitudes toward migrants, according to a poll by Ibris for PAP, The Sunday Times and Onet.pl.

A poll made a week before the referendum showed that only 39 percent Poles were concerned about an unpleasant approach to migrants.

66 percent of Polish living in the UK also worry that their economic situation might deteriorate following Brexit. Nonetheless, the majority of them (79 percent) see their future in the UK, while 22 percent is mulling over returning home and only 5.5 percent declared they will unconditionally return to Poland.
