Following the complaint police launched a CCTV appeal on Thursday to help identify a man, they say, may be able to help with their investigation.

A police spokesman said: "We received reports of a man making offensive and homophobic comments to another man at the McDonald's.

"It seems a man who was unknown to the aggrieved made offensive comments to him.

"The man who made the comments was in the company of a woman and child in a pram at the time."

The man is described as white, with black cropped hair and around 5ft 10ins tall.
