Police in Bristol have launched an investigation after two Asian women reported that they were racially abused and one of them punched in an assault by three white women inside a shop in the city.

The BBC's Steve Brodie spoke to Det Insp Pete Highway, from Avon and Somerset Police, and Alex Raikes, director of SARI (Support Against Racist Incidents), who claim racist incidents in the city are on the increase.
