A 17-year-old boy was subjected to racist abuse as he walked in Sprowston.

The teenager was on Fairstead Road near the junction with Wroxham Road at about 4.20pm on Thursday when he was approached by two men.

The men were verbally abusive towards him and then followed him for a short time as far as the traffic lights near Sprowston Police Station.

One of the men is described as having short blond hair and was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms.

The second suspect had short brown hair and was wearing tracksuit bottoms, an unzipped jacket, Nike trainers and a silver chain around his neck.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or noticed two people matching these descriptions in the area.
