British Transport Police officers have put out an appeal after two women became targets for racist and homophobic slurs in a train. The incident occurred at around 8.22pm on Saturday December 9 on a train from London Kings Cross to Peterborough. The victims were on the train when a man started a verbal attack on them. The women interjected and the man responded by pushing one of them and grabbing another one. After threatening to kill them he left the train. Investigating officer PC Christopher Marshall said: “This was a sustained and frightening ordeal for the two women, who did nothing to incite such violence. We will not stand for hate crime of any kind and so if you have any information in relation to this offence, please contact us as soon as you can.” Mayor of London Sadiq Khan previously admitted that the lel of hate crimes in London is extemely high and it should not be ignored.
