Not so Cool Runnings: 4 revellers who ‘blacked up’ to look like Jamaican bobsleigh team during carnival investigated by police for racism

Four carnival revellers who ‘blacked up’ to look like a Jamaican bobsleigh team are being investigated by police for racism.

The four men covered themselves in black bodypaint and Lycra bodysuits to dress up as characters from the 1993 cult comedy film Cool Runnings.

But the men who used a wooden bobsleigh sparked a police probe after complaints that their outfits in the street parade in Aberaeron, West Wales, were racist.
