Sickening footage shows a group of teenage friends being battered and taunted in a homophobic attack just moments after they left a Pride Month celebration.

The video shows youths surrounding a taxi, ripping open the doors and kicking and punching the passengers aged between 14 and 16 in an incident now being investigated as a hate crime.

Vile homophobic slurs are heard in the mobile phone footage as the shocking assault unfolded after a Pride event in Stoke-on-Trent on Saturday evening.

Two traumatised teens who were verbally abused by the youths have bravely spoken out - saying homophobia "is still a very real problem" - after they were called horrible names and told to "go kill yourselves", StokeonTrentLive reports.
