COPS are appealing for information after a taxi driver was reportedly subjected to racist abuse in Paisley.

The incident is said to have happened in Saints Street, near to Love Street, on Sunday at around 4.10am.

Police say three men, believed to be in their 20s, spouted racist remarks at a taxi driver in a silver Mercedes.

The men are then alleged to have blocked the driver from leaving the street for a short time before the arrival of a second taxi.

One suspect was wearing a grey tracksuit, another was in grey shots and a grey hoodie, and the third was in a grey and blue hoodie.

If anyone has any information they are being asked to call police on 101.
