Police are appealing for witnesses after a 29-year-old Asian man was subjected to racist abuse as he walked through an underpass that connects Bradley Stoke with Stoke Gifford.

It happened at about 7.30pm on Thursday 5th July in the Winterbourne Road underpass, between Huckley Way and Oxbarton.

A group of about seven young people were in the underpass and one young man shouted racial abuse. He was described as black, aged about 18, about 5ft 7ins tall and of slim build with an Afro hairstyle.

The suspect was with a group which included a white man of a similar age, who was about 5ft 9ins tall, with blond hair and two young women, also white. The man who was abused described being followed a little way but then left alone.
