British Transport Police has released a CCTV image of two women officers would like to speak to following an incident on a train between Birkdale and Seaforth and Litherland.

Officers were called on Thursday, 5 December, at about 8.30pm following reports of two passengers being abusive towards other travellers.

PC Jane McGee said: “Two women boarded the train at Birkdale and travelled to Seaforth and Litherland, initially doing so in relative peace and quiet.

“As the journey progressed the women became more and more abusive and threatened a woman passenger who was using her phone.

“The offenders, having become extremely aggressive, then threatened the woman stating they would ‘smash her face in’.”

Following a number of local enquiries officers have managed to isolate the CCTV image of two women and are now calling on the public to assist.

PC McGee added: “The behaviour of the two aggressors was as shocking as it was unprovoked and it is imperative we locate them as soon as possible.

“I believe the people captured on CCTV have key information about the incident and I am calling on anyone who recognises them – or who has information about the incident – to come forward.”

If you can assist the investigation in any way please call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or ring Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

In all calls please quote log NWA/B6 of 22/1/14.
