Police have issued a CCTV picture of a woman after a Muslim woman wearing a hijab was racially abused on the Tube.

The incident happened at around 4.15pm on March 10 when the victim was waiting to board a train on the eastbound Piccadilly line platform at King’s Cross station.

She felt someone push against her, turned around, and was racially abused by a woman.

The abuse continued on the train, leaving the victim “extremely upset”, say British Transport Police.

The woman was comforted by other passengers, until the train reached Caledonian Road, where she left and reported the matter.

PC Elspeth Cook said: “Everyone has the right to feel safe on their journey, and we work hard to ensure London Underground remains a pleasant and respectful environment.

“Thankfully this sort of unacceptable behaviour is rare, and we will do everything we can to identify the person responsible.

“I believe the woman in the image we are issuing today can help us with our investigation. Who is she?”
