Asian gang beats Englishman in racial assault


Victim: Scott Gilling shows his injuries after he was kicked and punched

A TERRIFIED bank worker told today how he feared for his life after a racist attack by a six-strong mob.

Scott Gilling, 25, lay helpless as the gang punched and kicked him in the head.

He said the men laughed as they kicked him on the ground and called him a "white b*****d." He eventually staggered to safety leaving a trail of blood.

Mr Gilling suffered a broken nose, chipped teeth and extensive bruising and cuts. He is now recovering at his Ripponden home. Police today appealed for the public's help to trace the six Asian men. Det Insp Mark McManus, of Calderdale CID, said: "This was an unprovoked attack, believed to be racially motivated."

Mr Gilling said he had been on his way to meet friends when he was confronted by the group on Sunday evening. They attacked his car before turning on him.
