Police have said that an apparently unprovoked attack on teenagers by three men is being treated as a hate crime.

The victims, all in their early teens, were approached and assaulted by three men in Weavers Fields, Bethnal Green, at around 5pm on Tuesday, July 25, in what they told police was an unprovoked attack.

The Metropolitan Police said the incident, which is being treated as a hate crime, left the teenagers bruised and shocked.

The suspects, aged between 30 and 40, are described as white men with eastern European accents.

Enquiries continue with no arrests made so far.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
