A family were racially assaulted after leaving a restaurant in Northampton.

It happened outside Bella Italia in Sixfields around 9 o'clock yesterday evening (26 January).

Three men attacked a mum, dad and their two teenage sons, which left them with injuries that needed hospital treatment.

Officers say this was an unprovoked attack and are appealing for witnesses as they conduct their enquiries.

Detective Inspector Kevin Wooldridge from Northamptonshire Police said: “This was an unprovoked incident which has left four people requiring hospital treatment when they should have been returning home from a quiet family night out.

“This was a deplorable, racially motivated attack and I would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have any information regarding it.

“I would also like to reassure people that we will be doing everything within our power to find those people responsible for this incident.”
