On Wednesday Nottingham Trent University student Rufaro Chisango tweeted a video of male voices chanting "we hate blacks" and "oh, ah, f**k the blacks" outside her room, which she says was recorded on Monday night.

An "urgent" investigation has been launched after a student posted a video of her being subjected to a barrage of racist abuse in her halls of residence.

She wrote on Twitter: "I'm the only black person on my floor and they were chanting this outside my door, so don't be surprised to why I didn't leave my room". Words can not describe how sad this makes me feel, in this 2018 people think this is still acceptable.

In a series of tweets, Chisango said the taunts began Monday night, noting her footage wasn't able to catch the other things the men said, like "Blacks would go back to picking cotton".

A man replies: "Blacks and whites will never be together". A woman attempted to intervene and told the men to "leave her alone" at one point in the clip. According to the BBC, they have both been suspended by Nottingham Trent University until the matter is resolved.

"Nottingham Trent is a really diverse and it seems like such a nice, safe place. We are also supporting the complainant and her flatmates".

"We've seen examples of incidents like the Confederate flag at Manchester and now shouting through the door in Nottingham", he said.

In its initial comment on the incident, a police spokesperson said, "We treat hate crime extremely seriously".

Chisango also said she shared the video after failing to get a response for two days after she lodged a complaint with the dorm's reception staff.

Support for Chisango poured in overnight, with Labour MP David Lammy urging her to call the police.

NTU have suspended the students in question pending a university investigation.

In its statement, the university told CNN: "We are also working with our accommodation partner to understand why the University was only alerted to this on Wednesday evening after this was reported to them in the very early hours of Tuesday".

Ilyas Nagdee, the NUS black students campaign officer, said that racist incidents were "common" and that he was "contacted at least a couple of times a week".

Rosie, a first year psychology student who lives in Sandby Hall, said she was "shocked" the incident had happened in her halls of residence. All my love and solidarity'.
