A former child refugee who fled war-torn Hungary is now leaving Britain after almost 50 years because it no longer feels like home.

As an eight-year-old girl Magdalena Williams, now 70, saw dead bodies and walked in the snow at night to escape her homeland's bloody 1956 revolution.

Britain eventually became her home when her mum married a man from Sevenoaks in 1970 after spells in Austria and Germany.

However, she said her family has now suffered great harm since the Brexit vote.

Her foster son, now 46, who she found abandoned in a German hospital when he was seven, suffered "fascist" abuse in a park this week near their St Mary Cray home of 11 years.

"I came home and he was very upset," Magdalena told News Shopper. "He said an elderly man started shouting at him for no reason.

"He shouted that 'your dog's owner is owned by a foreigner and she should piss off home.'"

Magdalena said she was furious and wished the abuse happened to her rather than her son.

Just three weeks earlier Magdalena’s Volkswagen car was smashed up outside her home.

Magdalena said that since Britain voted to leave the EU she doesn't feels safe because of a rise in bigotry, xenophobia, racism and fascism.

In the past 12 months there has been a 19.6 per cent increase in racist and religious hate crime in Bromley, figures from the Met Police show.

"I love this country more than people who were born here," she said.

"It is my sanctuary. It is my adopted country. There is still a strong anti-German feeling here. I thought I was safe."

She now fears her German foster son will be deported because he may not qualify for settled status, despite living here for 26 years.

Despite being 70, Magdalena is now looking to sell her home so she can be with her son in Europe.

She said: "I will be devastated. I wanted to die here. I just want to walk my dogs in the peace and quiet.

"My life will be totally chaotic. I have to build a new existence in a country I have no contacts.

"I will be a refugee again."

Magdalena continued: "I will miss the humour, and even the weather. I love an English spring in the countryside. I will miss the music. I feel British."

However, the level of intolerance has become too upsetting for Magdalena, who said she doesn’t have time to wait for Britain to recover from Brexit.

The country has opened the door to "vile people" who don’t represent the values of most Britons, according to the mum.

Magdalena, who used to work for the foreign office and speaks five language, issued the following warning.

"People would do anything for dogs here, but they are suspicious of their neighbour if they have a different colour, accent, religion or passport.

"I went to a German school during a turbulent time. And my alarm bells are now ringing for Britain.

"There is a right-wing trend and coming from Hungary I recognise how easily things escalate."
