Police are investigating an alleged homophobic attack in Northampton.

Last Thursday (August 15), a couple were walking their dogs through Victoria Park, Northampton, when a group of men and women started hurling homophobic abuse towards them.

The two men continued their walk, but the abuse continued until they were out of earshot.

The group reportedly had two Staffordshire bull terrier dogs with them.

Now, police are asking for witnesses to the abuse to come forward.
