Do you recognise this man?

British Transport Police would like to speak to him in connection with a homophobic incident in Merseyside.

At about 4pm on 30 May, two men were alighting a train at St Michaels railway station, when they were subjected to homophobic abuse from a man on the platform, who was getting onto the train in the direction of Southport.

He made abusive remarks and threatened them with violence. The man spoke with a broad Liverpool accent.

Officers would like to speak to the man in this image, as he may be able to help with enquiries.

Investigating officer PC Victoria Hodson said: “Abuse of any kind will absolutely not be tolerated on our railways.

“This incident left the victims feeling frightened for their own safety and so I urge anyone with information to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting 328 of 30/5.
