A driver was racially abused by a group of men who he stopped for thinking they needed help.

The victim, a 20-year-old man, was driving along Rowley Drive, Newmarket, towards Exning Road at 6.50pm on Sunday.

He became aware of the group of eight men shouting at him and pulled over.

But as he wound down his window one of the group was verbally abusive, while another poured beer over his dashboard.

A third man poured beer into his eye and smashed a beer bottle over the car while making racist comments.
