Officers are investigating allegedly racist comments which appeared on the Bridlington Free Press’ Facebook page today.

The comment, which has now been hidden, was left on a link to a story about three men who were sentenced for beating two Asian holidaymakers in Bridlington.

A spokesperson for Humberside Police said: “Police have received a report of racially aggravated comments being made on a public web site on 18 September 2015

“This matter is now receiving attention and enquiries are underway.”
