You may have seen one of these suspiciously friendly posters dotted around certain UK cities. No, they're not trying to sell you something. The lovely messages of acceptance and inclusion popped up just under a month ago as a counter response to hate crimes following Brexit.

Caremongers is the non-profit behind the initiative – set up by graphic designer Jon Richards with the sole intention to lighten the mood by spreading funny, kind and positive messages on billboards, bus stops and online.

The simple yet infectious first wave of posters can be spotted on bus shelters and railway platforms in five cities - Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Swindon and Edinburgh.
