A poster was sent to the police to inform residents of a block of flats in the United Kingdom that people who speak languages other than English in the building "we will not tolerate it".

The unsigned note was reportedly found in Winchester Tower in Norwich, eastern England, on Friday morning, hours before the United Kingdom officially left the European Union at 2300 GMT after 47 years of membership. The UK formally withdrew from the European Union that day.

Photographs of the poster were published on The Guardian and the Independent, both of which cited anonymous sources on Twitter.

"We are actually our personal nation once more and the the [sic] Queens English [sic] is the spoken tongue right here".

An offensive "Joyful Brexit Day" poster warning individuals to not converse "the mom tongue of the nation you got here from" except it was English has been reported to police.

If you want to speak the native language of the country you came from, we recommend that you return to this place and return your apartment to the local council so that the British can live here and we can return before you have infected them great once Island.

"It is a simple choice, obey the rule of the majority or leave".

The words also hail the return of "our great country" and say Brexit means the government will be "putting the British first". So best evolve or leave.

"God Save the Queen, her authorities and all true patriots". "No person ought to must face intimidation due to who they're and it's extra vital than ever that we stand collectively within the face of hostility".

Police are treating the incident as a racially-aggravated public incident, however have made no arrests but, a spokeswoman for the power advised Enterprise Insider.

Many residents within the space slammed the poster, with Humphrey tweeting: "This picture under no circumstances represents our county or metropolis. A racist, bigoted minority will NEVER be tolerated & NEVER prevail".

"Norwich has a proud history of being a welcoming city, and we will not tolerate this behaviour". We remain committed to helping people feel safe and secure as they go about their lives'. "Norwich is an open, inclusive place; this hateful crap needs to be dealt with".

Fresh posters were placed in the tower blocks in support of European tenants while a rally was held outside the block to make it clear they were welcome in Norwich.

The Bishop of Norwich the Rt Rev Graham Usher said: "I found the wording on the poster appalling and contrary to my experience of the city of Norwich as a place of welcome and care".
