British Transport Police are appealing for information after an incident on a Edinburgh to Glasgow train last month.

The incident on Thursday, August 28, saw a 33-year-old woman assaulted and subjected to racial and religious abuse on the 10.30pm Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh train.

BTP have now released an image of the man involved, taken shortly before the train arrived at Linlithgow Railway Station at 11pm.

He is described as approximately six feet tall, medium build, short dark greying hair, Scottish accent and he was wearing a dark suit, a white shirt and a blue tie. He alighted at Linlithgow station.

British Transport Police would like to speak to the man pictured and anyone who recognises him is asked to come forward.

Detective Constable Paul Farquhar, the officer in charge of the enquiry, said: “I am appealing to anyone who recognises the man in the photograph to contact me as a matter of urgency.”

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or by texting 61016 – quoting reference B8 of 29/08/2014. Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
