Racist attack: 'He's chasing after me... being very abusive'

Greek-born Dimitris Legakis says he fears for the safety of his family after he was hurt in a racially motivated attack last year.

The photographer, who has lived in Wales for 17 years, was attacked while away with Swansea City FC in Middlesbrough ahead of a Premier League match.

He recorded the moment he was attacked while calling 999 to report a man trying to break into a car.

The recording was released as South Wales Police said hate crime was still drastically under-reported.

Official figures showed the number of hate crimes across England and Wales rose by 29% in 2016/17.
