Officers from British Transport Police are appealing for information after two women were subjected to racial abuse on the Glasgow Subway. 

Between 7pm and 7.15pm on 13 June, two women were racially abused by a man who made reference to being part of the BNP. The man boarded the service at St Enochs and left at Cessnock station. 

To date, the victims in this case have not reported this matter to police, however other concerned passengers did.

The man is described as white, aged in his thirties and of slim build. He had brown hair which was shaved at the sides and spiked on top. He had black frame glasses and was wearing a light coloured jumper, blue jeans and white trainers. 

Anyone with information about this incident or this man, should contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 557 of 13/06/18. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
