Police are appealing for information following a racially motivated assault on a Northern Line train.

At about 9.50am on September 1, a man was shouting racial abuse at two women who were wearing hijabs.

Another passenger, a man in his thirties, told the offender to stop. The offender then approached the victim, threatened him and pushed him in the chest. He is also believed to have spat at him.

The offender was in his early forties, around 5ft 10ins and was of a thin build. He had bad teeth and scruffy hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016 with reference 196 of 1 September.

Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
