Police in west London are appealing for information on two suspects involved in a “racially motivated attack” on two brothers at a pub during Chelsea's Premiership victory parade.

The incident took place on the evening of 25 May at the Duke on the Green pub on New Kings Road.

A 40-year-old man was racially abused and punched around the head several times in the pub’s toilets by the two suspects before his friend managed to break up the fight.

The victim’s brother, who challenged the suspects, was thrown to the ground outside the busy pub before he was “brutally” kicked in the head and face. The 37-year-old sustained three jaw fractures.

Detective Sergeant Clare Chattaway said it was a “particularly vicious assault”.

“A day of celebration ended in misery with the victims and their family still in shock from what took place,” she said, adding that one victim was still receiving medical treatment for injuries caused by being “brutally kicked in the face”.

Scotland Yard released CCTV images of the suspects today in an effort to identify them.
