A pensioner had his leg broken in two places after being kicked in a racist attack in Kentish Town.

The 73-year-old victim was left with a double fracture to his leg and ankle when he was set upon at 2pm on Saturday afternoon in Queen's Crescent.

He had earlier asked some youngsters, aged 12 and 13 to stop kicking at his door. But moments later an older man walked up to him and began kicking and racially abusing him.

The pensioner was taken to the Royal Free Hospital.

Police have launched a manhunt to find his attacker who was white and aged around 30-years-old. He was 5ft 10ins tall and was wearing blue trousers and black shoes.

He had a London accent, was of slim build and had stubble on his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call Camden Police on 020 7404 1212 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
