For the first time, the Community Security Trust has acknowledged that there has been a real increase in antisemitic incidents in Prestwich, as opposed to a rise simply caused by more effective crime reporting.
According to the CST, there were 89 hate incidents in the first six months of 2010 in the King's Road area .
Addressing the Manchester Jewish Representative Council on Sunday, a CST spokesman said that the community was failing to report verbal abuse. He told delegates: "If we don't make an issue of it, it can turn into a far more violent attack in the future."
