CCTV footage has been released as part of an investigation into racist comments made to an Asian train conductor in Worcestershire.

British Transport Police (BTP) said the train manager had been checking tickets when two women without them were asked to leave the train.

BTP said they had sworn at the conductor and had made racist comments.

A spokesman said it had happened on the 19:30 GMT Alvechurch to Lichfield service on 7 November last year.

PC Mark Murphy said: "Rail staff informed police but both women left the train and the station before officers arrived at Alvechurch."

BTP officers want to speak to the women pictured in the CCTV image.
