POLICE are investigating a ‘Happy Brexit Day' poster that told residents of a block of flats to only speak English or leave the country.

The poster, that was found stuck on fire doors across all 15 floors of Winchester Tower in Norwich on Friday morning - the day the UK formally left the European Union, proudly declared: “We finally have our great country back.” It told residents of the flats that “we do not tolerate” people speaking languages other than English in the building and said those unwilling to do so should leave the UK. Norfolk Police confirmed they were investigating the incident and said they had seized the poster for forensic inquiries.

Addressing residents, the poster said: “The Queens [sic] English is the spoken tongue here.

The text continued: “You won’t have long till our government will implement rules that will put British first. So, best evolve or leave.

“God Save the Queen, her Government and all true patriots.”
