Police are appealing for witnesses after a female dog walker racially abused a mother in a Seaford park.

The 38-year-old victim was with her nine-year-old son at Salts Recreation Ground in Richmond Road, when her child was chased by a small dog that was barking at him.

When she asked the owner of the dog to control the animal, the offender shouted racist abuse at her.

The woman was white, aged between 50 and 60-years-old and of medium build. She had bobbed brown highlighted hair and blue eyes and was wearing a white t-shirt with a Mickey Mouse print on it and a black skirt.

She had with her a small beige or cream fluffy dog.

The incident happened at about 7.45pm last Tuesday (August 6).

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 1530 of 6 August or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
