Students at Hans Price Academy had the chance to board the North Somerset Hate Crime Awareness Bus on Tuesday.

The bus is touring the area to raise awareness of what hate crime is, how to report it and how to fight it.

It was open to students and parents from 12.30 to 4pm before continuing on its roadshow around North Somerset.

Assistant principal Nicky Munro said: “This was a great opportunity for our students to learn how serious hate crime really is – particularly in terms of the local and post-referendum national picture.

“We want our students to take part and be proud of the multi-cultural society we live in.”
