Probe over racist abuse on train in Glasgow

British Transport Police are trying to find a man who racially abused another train passenger in Glasgow.

The 32-year-old victim boarded the 18:23 Balloch to Cumbernauld train at Dalmuir on Wednesday.

During the journey, he was subjected to racial abuse by another man in his 40s. The abuse continued when both men got off the train at Anniesland station.

The man responsible was described as being about 5ft 10in tall, of heavy build, with short dark hair.

At the time of the abuse, he had a bike with him and was wearing grey tracksuit trousers and an orange hi-visibility jacket.

British Transport Police (BTP) said the abuse at Anniesland station was witnessed by others on the platform who appeared to intervene.

Officers are now reviewing CCTV images from the train and stations in a bid to identify the man.

Det Con Marc Francey, of BTP, said: "I am keen to speak with anyone who was on the train or those who witnessed the abuse at Anniesland station to contact BTP as a matter of urgency."
