A train passenger was subjected to a ‘vile tirade of abuse’ on a Bromley South train because a woman was asked to move her shopping bags.

The incident happened on the 6.57pm Victoria to Ramsgate service on Wednesday, June 19.

A man asked the woman to move her bags so he could sit down.

When she refused, the 52-year-old victim then made the same request, and she was subjected to verbal abuse, which included ‘racial comments’.

British Transport Police has released the image of someone they think can help them with their enquiries.

Pc Neil Allison said: “It is thought the woman left the service at Bromley South.

“If you recognise the woman pictured, or know her whereabouts, then please get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact BTP on 0800 405040 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
