The victim of a sickening race hate attack has shared images of his injuries and detailed his harrowing ordeal online.

The black man said he feared for his life after being set upon by a group of white men.

In a video shared widely on social media, he described how they stamped on his face, called him a "monkey" and the N word.

He also showed the cuts to his head and tongue that he sustained, with the caption: "How I got racially assaulted by five white guys in Liverpool."

The video has been viewed more than 500,000 times on Twitter alone since it was shared on Monday, reports LiverpoolEcho.

Music artist Wretch 32 and Love Island winner Amber Rose Gill are among those who have since shown their support for the victim, with the video prompting calls for an investigation into the attack.

In it, the victim recalled being forced to the ground and said: "They seemed like nice lads, they were dressed up to go out, but they started stamping on my face.

"They called me monkey, they called me the N word, they called me a (N word) but, anyway, all of them started kicking me in the face. It was so painful, so they kept kicking my face. And then I passed out while they were kicking me and then I woke up and I was still being kicked and so, anyway, they started kicking my legs, just kicking my legs – I don't know what the what the plan was, just stamping on them, stamping on them, stamping on them."

The man said his attackers stole money, his rucksack and his second phone before he got up and fled while bleeding.

He added: "I ran off through Liverpool city centre and I kept thinking I am going to die."

Sharing more detail on Instagram, the victim said he had been drinking in Liverpool city centre at 4pm on Sunday and decided to try and book a room at a city centre hotel.

He said: "On my way on the stairs of the hotel to the reception a group of five white guys pushed me from behind. I tripped and hit my head on the stair.

"I passed out for a second then the five guys turned me around and faced me up, then they constantly stepped in my face."

He said they then hurled racist abuse at him while kicking his face and legs.

The ECHO understands Merseyside Police and Greater Manchester Police have been made aware of the video.
