York police are appealing for witnesses after a disabled man was racially abused in the city centre.
The victim, an eastern European man in his twenties who has no legs, was sitting on his skateboard busking on Coney Street when he was approached by a man at around midday on Saturday April 26.
The man abused him and kicked over his belongings, before some members of the public intervened and the abusive man left.
Disabled benefit claimants in the North East will be among the first to receive the Government's new personal independence payment (PIP). The disability living allowance is being scrapped and replaced with the PIP which will involve an individual assessment in a bid to cut down on overpayments.
