Two girls were racially abused by a man in Borehamwood.

The 13 year olds were in Brook Road at 4pm on Saturday when the man shouted at them.

Police were called, but the man had left before they arrived.

The man is described as while, about 30 years old, about 5ft 9ins tall and of medium build. He was wearing blue jeans, a grey jumper with a black band round the middle and had dark blonde ear-length wavy hair.

PC Ben Stevens said: "This incident was reported to us by a member of the public, rather than the two girls. I would be really keen to speak to these girls to establish if there was any criminality involved.

"It may be these girls did not feel comfortable to come forward and report this incident to police. However, I would like to encourage them to speak to me. We take racist incidents of this kind very seriously."

He added: "I would also like to speak to anyone else who witnessed the incident or may have information about it, including the man who shouted the abuse."
