Passenger suffers homophobic abuse on train

Police are investigating after a person was subjected to homophobic abuse on a train through Rugby.

It happened on a Euston to New Street service on the evening of December the 23rd.

The man made homophobic comments towards the individual and CCTV shows the same offender putting a teenage boy in a headlock, after the latter also queued for the toilet.

The offender got off the train in Wolverhampton, but told the station manager he was travelling to Shrewsbury.

British transport Police say hate crime of any description will not be tolerated on the rail network.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016, with reference 495 of 23 December.
