Upon arrival at the venue in Little Billington, near Leighton Buzzard in Bedfordshire, the three women, dressed in costume, were attacked by a group of primary-school aged children who kicked and punched them, the Sun reports.

Ebonie told the paper: ‘We kept doing crying gestures to get them to calm down.

‘No one was controlling them and they were just being allowed to attack us.’

The three women were dressed as the characters Chase, Marshall and Skye from Channel 5’s show Paw Patrol.

In the attack, Ebonie had the head from her costume pulled down so that she couldn’t see while the head on Rosie’s costume was taken clean off by the children.

Throughout the attack Ebonie claims that the children yelled racist abuse.

All three women tried to leave the party and reach their car but the gates to the caravan park were closed. and the birthday boy’s parents demanded their £80 deposit back.

The entertainers had been booked at a fee of £800 but the birthday boy’s parents demanded they receive their £80 deposit back.

Eventually the police were called and eight officers arrived to help the women.

Ebonie says the sight of three riot vans and three police cars turning up to a four-year-old’s birthday party was surreal.

The mother-of-one, who claims she is still owed £320, said it had been the worst birthday party she had ever been to and could not believe that the racial abuse being yelled had come from children of such a young age. 

A police spokeswoman said: ‘Investigations have been launched into allegations of criminal damage, assaults, threats to cause criminal damage and a public order offence.’
