“Hate crime has no place here in Wiltshire and we would encourage anyone who believes they have been a victim of racial abuse to never suffer in silence and report it to police on 101 or report it via the True Vision website

“We would also ask that any witnesses to this incident call us on 101 - any information you have could be significant to our investigation.”
