Police have launched an appeal for witnesses after a cashier at a Norwich petrol station was racially abused by a customer.

The incident took place at the BP Oval garage in Dereham Road at around 1.10am on Sunday September 8.

The victim was serving a man, who was accompanied by two women, through a serving hatch when he became racially abusive and began to punch the window before hitting it with a bottle causing it to crack.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or seen a man and two women in the immediate area at around that time.

Witnesses are asked to contact PC Gordon Rance at Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
