TV man films race crime suspect
Faith-hate crime suspect
The suspect had an Australian accent
A TV cameraman who was the victim of racist taunts on the day of the failed London bomb attacks, has captured his alleged abuser on film.

The employee for Arabic TV channel Al Jazeera, who is from Egypt but lives and works in London, had been covering the attempted bombings on 21 July.

But as he walked along Horseferry Road, central London, two men approached him - one accused him of carrying a bomb.

The cameraman then went into a nearby shop and started filming the pair.

Police have released an image of the suspect and described him as white, in his mid-30s, about 6ft 1in and balding. He had an Australian accent.

A police spokesman said: "We treat racially aggravated and faith-hate crimes very seriously and we are keen to find the suspect as such offences cause great offence."

Scotland Yard appealed for anyone who recognises the man to come forward.
