X Factor star Marcus Collins has joined forces with Merseyside Police to raise awareness amongst young people about hate crime.
Marcus, 25, from Sefton, was subjected to abuse as he walked his dog through a local park last October.
He reported it to Merseyside Police and the force's anti-hate crime unit, known as Sigma, successfully investigated the attack.
A video featuring Marcus, Merseyside Police's Chief Constable Jon Murphy, Dominique Walker, and members of various anti-hate crime organisations will be shown for the first time to young people today.
It will also be given to local councils across Merseyside to be shown in schools as well as to the other emergency services, NHS organisations, charities and support groups in a bid to raise awareness of what a hate crime is and how someone can report it.
