Police are hunting four men after a woman reported being subjected to a 'torrent of racial abuse' on Hampstead Heath.

The victim tried to ignore the group as they approached her near Highgate Men’s Pond on Sunday 24 May, just before 9pm.

As she walked away they hurled a verbal torrent of racial abuse at her, leaving the woman upset and shocked.

Police have released images of four suspects taken on the victim's phone at the time of the attack.

For four men to verbally attack a lone female is beyond cowardly. The incident has left the victim shaken and nervous of being outside alone. If you can name any of the males shown in the images, or if you witnessed the incident but haven’t yet spoken with police, please contact us immediately.
