Images released after alleged racist abuse incident

Investigating officers have been carrying out extensive enquiries.

Police investigating an incident where a man and a woman shouted racist abuse at a man in the street have released images of two people they want to speak to.

The victim walked past two people on his way home along Nottingham Road, Hucknall when he heard a racist remark. He challenged the pair and was greeted with an onslaught of insults where the offenders got right up in his face and would not let him past.

Investigating officers have been carrying out extensive enquiries, including checking through CCTV following the incident at 00:25am on 17 July.

Inspector Kylie Davies said: “The racist abuse the victim has suffered was appalling and there is absolutely no place for this behaviour in our society.

“We take a zero-tolerance approach to all hate crimes and it is shocking to think that someone would think it is acceptable to speak to people in this way.
