03 August 2018 @ 21:57

A RACIST verbal attack on a little girl and her mother on the Madrid metro was met with a flood of outrage by fellow passengers after their assailant reportedly told them they had 'no right' to be in Spain.

Luz Matamoros, originally from Nicaragua, was with her daughter, who is nearly seven and was born in Spain, when a female passenger blocked the child's seat as she was about to sit in it.

“You've no right to sit there,” she told the little girl.

“We had just got on the metro and my daughter was really tired, so a woman who was getting off the train offered her seat to her,” explains Luz.

“Just as my little girl sat down, another woman tried to stop her.

“She said, 'you lot come over here to sponge off our hard work'.

“I didn't understand any of it, and my daughter became really frightened.”
