A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson said: "We are aware of a video posted at Nottingham Trent University and which has been shared on social media. It is wholly unacceptable and we’re proactively investigating the incident and liaising with the university.

"We treat hate crime extremely seriously and we would always urge anyone who has been the victim of or a witness to hate crime to report it.

"Everyone who lives and works in or visits Nottinghamshire has a right to go about their lives without being subjected to hate. This type of crime can have a devastating impact on not only a person's quality of life but also on the wider community. It deprives individuals of their rights and generates fear in society.

"We treat hate crime as a priority and, as well as pursuing offenders, the Force works with partners such as the Safer Nottinghamshire Board and Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Councils on prevention work.

"This includes the Breaking the Cycle programme to change perceptions on prejudice among young people, as well as offering No To Hate training, which has been delivered to more than 1,000 agency staff members.  

"Anyone who believes they are a victim of hate crime is urged to report it to police by calling 101."

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
