Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses to an incident of racially aggravated abuse in Swindon at the weekend.

At approximately 11.50am, on Sunday 28 June, a man in his 50s and his daughter who is aged in her 20s, were shopping at the Food Warehouse by Iceland in Barnfield Road when a man who was not known to them made racist comments towards them. 

The man’s actions left the pair feeling alarmed and distressed.
