A woman has been filmed hurling racist abuse at black teenagers outside a shopping centre in a shocking video.
The vile incident took place outside Arcades Shopping Centre in Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside, Greater Manchester, on Monday 12 at around 3pm.
In the video, a couple are seen having a row with a group of youths, but it is unclear how the argument started.
The woman then launches into a tirade of racist abuse at the teens, calling one of the boys the N-word.
She then tells him to 'f**k off' repeatedly as her husband speaks to the rest of the group.
The youngsters gasp in horror at the woman's slurs and are left enraged by the racist comments.
One furious young girl launches towards the woman and attempts to punch her.
She is shoved away by the woman's husband and pulled back by friends.
The couple, still holding hands, continue their tirade of abuse at the youngsters.
Greater Manchester Police have been approached for comment on the video.

Another commented 'This woman got off lightly for what she did to these kids!'
Others individuals appeared to claim that this behaviour was typical in Ashton-under-Lyme.
One user wrote 'And that's why I'm not proud of Ashton' – whilst another stated 'Ashton makes me sad'.
