A far-right group has claimed responsibility for putting up "hate crime" posters in the city, linking Muslims with child grooming gangs.
Police are treating the posters as a hate crime and the Worcester Muslim Welfare Association has condemned the posters.
They say the 'mischievous' posters are aimed at dividing a peaceful community in Worcester.
The association says the posters have been plastered across the city centre over the last two weeks.
The posters say: Protect Children ... Fight Grooming Gangs (which is written in Arabic typography).
