When mum-of-five Katie – still on holiday in the Maldives – found out about the video, she posted an angry message on Instagram.

She said: “I’ve been sent this disgusting racist mockery [bleep] taking video about me and Harvey mocking his disabilities.

Does anybody know these disgusting humans as I will be reporting this to the police.

“Clearly planned hence the face painting! Does anybody know these disgusting humans as I will be reporting this to the police.”
