Police are hunting for a group of men who got out of two white vans at the Queensway Centre in Worle and carried out a racially-aggravated assault on one man in his 20s.

The incident took place at 11.25pm on July 4, but Avon and Somerset Constabulary has today (Tuesday) put out an appeal for witnesses.
