The pair were walking towards the shops on Farthing Grove in Netherfield, a week ago today, when they were approached by the man.

A man has allegedly punched a heavily pregnant woman in the stomach in Milton Keynes after accusing her, and the man she was with, of being racist.

At around 4.40pm on Monday (9/7) a man and a woman were walking towards the shops on Farthing Grove from the direction of the hospital. The pair were approached by another man who accused the victim of being racist.

When the victim replied that he hadn’t said anything, the man threw a bottle of water over him and then punched the woman in the stomach.
