Police appeal after woman racially abused on a train
Police have launched an appeal after a woman was racially abused by a group of men on a train.
The gang of men started abusing the woman on a train travelling from Clapham Junction to Shepperton, just after 5.50pm yesterday.
They began to use derogatory and foul language towards the woman, while being accompanied by two large dogs.
There were about five or six men, aged between 40 to 50 years old, who left at Fulwell Station.
British Transport Police (BTP) are appealing for witnesses to come forward who were travelling on the train.
Officers are making enquiries and reviewing CCTV footage.
Detective Sergeant Tony Burman said: "The victim has been left very upset by what took place and I am now appealing for anyone with information to come forward with information that may help with our investigation.
"BTP do not tolerate this kind of behaviour on the rail network and take reports of racial abuse extremely seriously.
"I’d urge anyone who has any information about the incidents, to contact us as soon as possible."
Anyone with information can call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 quoting log 526 of 31/01/2013, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
