Yob sought after train incident

First published in News

A DRUNKEN yob who verbally abused a woman a grandmother as she travelled on the east coast main line is being sought by police.

British Transport Police have released a photograph of a man they would like to speak to following the incident on board a train as it travelled between Northallerton and York on November 24 at around 6.30pm.

PC Harry Thompson said: “A lady from Northallerton was travelling with her five-year-old granddaughter on the 17.19 Sunderland to London Kings Cross service, when a heavily intoxicated man wearing a Sunderland football shirt began using abusive language.

“When the victim asked him to stop, he continued swearing and using unacceptable language directed at her.”

He added: “We will not tolerate abusive and offensive language being used in a pubic environment and being directed at people in this way.

“If you recognise the man in the photograph, or have any information about the incident, then please get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800-405040 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Bring in Saudi justice for this yob. Ban alcohol or massively increase its price. That yob needs a harsh lesson ..... 50 lashes would make him think again.
