11:43am 21st December 2017

Police appealing for information after a young girl was racially abused on a train between Wigan and Preston.

Between 10.45pm and 11.10pm on 8 December, the 12-year-old girl was travelling on the train with her mother when a man started to shout racial abuse at her.

It caused her a lot of distress and upset.

The man was thin and in his mid to late twenties. He had a faded tattoo on his neck, which was believed to be a 'G' in old-fashioned writing and with a tail on the letter.

He was wearing a black baseball cap with 'KING' written on it in gold letters.

If you ever see this kind of abuse, or experience it yourself, then you can always contact BTP by discreetly texting 61016 - which goes straight through to our control room.

If you know who this man is, please contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016, with reference 614 of 8 December.
