Come on plod, release the CCTV from the station & the train. They have forfeited privacy, just because of their ages, when they behaved that way.
Despicable two.

The description of the alleged miscreants misses an important detail - their ethnicity. Without it, the story is incomplete and the prospect of catching those responsible and bringing them to justice is diminished.

ArfurTowcrate,

I take it that you are as silly as your name. Two people, one with chestnut hair, the other fat and ginger haired. The ethnicity is pretty obvious, White European. With those descriptions, they are extremely unlikely to be Asian, Afro-Caribbean or anything else you doughnut!!

Argue, you are a wind up merchant. Everybody knows ONLY white people can be racists, so it's obvious the suspects are white. A few years ago in Brixton the police never bothered to give an ethnic description of street robbers....they were always black!
