A 40-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assault and incitement to hatred following an incident in Portadown, County Armagh.

It follows a report that racial abuse was shouted at a Muslim woman walking on the Gilford Road on Saturday afternoon by people in a car.

She was also allegedly assaulted by a passenger who got out of the car.

The incident is being treated as a hate crime. The woman who was arrested has been released on bail.

Police said a number of passing motorists are believed to have beeped their horns when they saw the incident.

They have appealed for witnesses to contact them.
