Probe into migrant worker attacks
Three crimes against migrant workers in a few days in the same Cambridgeshire town are being investigated by police.

Two Eastern European men were attacked by a gang of four teenagers armed with a golf club and a table leg in Oak Drive, Huntingdon, on 30 September.

The next day a stone was thrown through the window of a house in Beech Close as a gang of about 15 youths shouted racist abuse at the occupants.

And a 31-year-old man was attacked by seven youths in Oak Drive on 2 October.

The victim was hit over the head with a table leg.

Insp Andrew Pickles said: "It is totally unacceptable and unlawful that members of our community are being targeted because of their nationality.

"Cambridgeshire Constabulary treats crimes of this nature very seriously and I would like to appeal for anyone with information to come forward."
