TWO Asian women were subjected to a "vile tirade" of racist abuse outside a supermarket.

The two women were subjected to the abuse, which was accompanied by swearing and aggression, outside Asda, St Martin's Quarter, at 10.30am on Monday, June 17.

A passer-by reported the incident and now police are appealing for the women to come forward along with anyone who witnessed the abuse.

The offender was a white woman, described as approximately 5ft 5ins tall, of slim build and in her 50s.

She had short dyed blonde hair which was greying.

PC Dave Wood of West Mercia Police said: “The victims were subjected to a vile tirade.
