A 104-year-old was the oldest victim of race hate crime in the country last year.

Disturbing new data, released under Freedom of Information, shows the person was abused because of their ethnicity in north Manchester.

Two people in their 90s were also targeted because of their disability, and a 95-year-old was also the victim of violence in a homophobic crime.
