TWO teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after an NHS worker was 'hit by a car in a race-hate attack' in Bristol.

The victim, 21, who has not been named, was walking home from his shift at Southmead Hospital when he was 'deliberately' struck by a car, it's claimed.

The young man was left with horrifying injuries after being attacked - his family shared the shocking pictures Witness Colin Tarr, 74, who ran to help the victim Two men, both aged 18, have now been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder

The thugs allegedly yelled "f****** n*****" after running the innocent victim into a wall.

They then ditched the car and fled, leaving the man to fight for his life, it was alleged.

The victim was left with a broken leg, nose and cheekbone, and will need plastic surgery to his face and leg.

Witness Colin Tarr, 74, who ran to help, said the alleged attackers used masks to hide their identity.

The retired aerospace engineer claimed: "Their faces were covered with Covid-19 masks and hats pulled down.

"They seemed to be wearing them to prevent them being identified rather than for health purposes but I could see they were both white and their victim was black.

"If I hadn't reversed the car off him, he could have died, I'm sure. He was in a bad way."

Hero Colin then drove after the attackers but they managed to escape.

He said: "I went back to see how the young man was.

"He was still lying where I'd left him on the pavement covered in blood. His head, back and legs were bleeding heavily."

He alleges he heard the attackers shouting "horrible racist abuse" at the victim.

"He was clearly in a lot of pain," Colin said.

"There was an initial bang when the car hit him, then the sound of a smash as his head went through the windscreen, shattering it.

"He ended up crushed against a wall with railings and he was completely trapped by the car."

The young man said: "I have six months of recovery ahead of me, minimum.

"I have a broken leg, nose and cheekbone, will need plastic surgery to my face and leg and am walking on crutches."

The victim was left with horror injuries Two young men have now been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder

Police confirmed they are treating the incident as a racially aggravated assault - and today, two men have been arrested.

A spokesperson said: "A 21-year-old man sustained serious injuries including a broken leg, nose and cheekbone after being deliberately struck by a car on Monks Park Avenue, Horfield at 4.30pm on Wednesday, July 22.

"The incident is being treated as a racially-aggravated attack due to the racist language used by the occupants of the car.

"A dedicated investigation team was put in place following the incident and continues to carry out enquiries with the support of officers from our Major Crime Investigation Team.

"Two men, both aged 18, were subsequently arrested this morning on suspicion of attempted murder and are currently in police custody.

"The vehicle involved in the incident has been seized and we’re awaiting the results of a full forensic examination carried out on it."

Andrea Young, Chief Executive at North Bristol NHS Trust, said it was "incredibly saddened" by the harm suffered by a member of staff.

She said: "The police believe this to have been a racially aggravated attack and we are horrified that this is something that has happened to one of our friends and colleague.

"Racism, in any form, has no place in our society and that an attack such as this can happen is shocking."

Police are asking anyone who saw a dark blue Honda Accord being driven in the area at around that time, or those with any CCTV or dashcam footage of the incident or the vehicle just beforehand, to get in touch.

Even TikTok has a white supremacy problem

(CNN Business)Nazis and white supremacists have been using TikTok to spread hate speech and recruit followers, the Anti-Defamation League said in a report Thursday.

Extremists have used hashtags, captions and in some cases even manipulated video to spread their message, the ADL said. It found "dozens" of accounts on TikTok that "use combinations of white supremacist symbols, terms and slogans as screen names or handles." While TikTok has been called "the last sunny corner of the Internet," the ADL's findings are a reminder that the short-form video app, like its rivals, is also grappling with hateful content. Facebook has been subject to an ongoing advertiser boycott over its handling of hate speech and misinformation, while services like Google-owned YouTube have sometimes struggled to follow through on their commitments.
    The report also ramps up the public scrutiny of TikTok, which has come under fire from the Trump administration as a potential national security risk for its ties to China. In its report, the ADL said it had secured a commitment from TikTok to work together to identify and remove white supremacist content. It is not clear how many TikTok users may have viewed that content; the ADL said its report is not intended as an exhaustive assessment.Read MoreTikTok confirmed the ADL partnership on Thursday, and said much of the content flagged by the ADL has already been removed. The company said it has removed hundreds of thousands of videos and more than 1,000 accounts this year for violating its hate speech policies.Trump says he will ban TikTok"For all the progress we've made improving our policies and protections, hate evolves and takes many forms which is why we're grateful to work with organizations like the Anti-Defamation League to combat it," the company said in a statement. "We appreciate when content and accounts are brought to our attention so that we can swiftly remove what violates our Community Guidelines and strengthen our safeguards. We welcome expert feedback and guidance as we strive to promote a safe and uplifting experience for our community." Groups promoting white supremacy on TikTok have sought to appropriate the #blacklivesmatter hashtag, the ADL said. They also have used hashtags including #alllivesmatter and #whitelivesmatter.
      White supremacists on the platform also used other methods to obscure their behavior and evade detection, the ADL said, such as by employing coded language or sharing images of books, signs or web URLs for viewers to research on their own. They have even resorted to deceptively edited videos that misrepresent the words of others, the ADL said. In one case, according to the ADL, a TikTok user added a voiceover to a video from the popular and controversial Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie to make it appear as though he was endorsing the views of Adolf Hitler.
