POLICE want to track down a man who boarded a train in Holyhead after rail staff were verbally abused and threatened at Llanduno Junction.

British Transport Police have issued a picture of a man they want to speak to after the incident at about 8.45pm Monday, June 23.

PC John Sharp said: “Two men who boarded a train at Holyhead were ejected at Bangor after failing to provide valid tickets to a guard.

“They boarded another train shortly afterwards, but were ejected at Llandudno Junction for the same reason.

“While at the station, they were approached by station staff, at which point, one of them became abusive and threatening.”

Staff, who were worried for their safety, called the police and the men left the station.

PC Sharp added: “We will not accept any abuse or threats of violence against staff or passengers on the rail network.

“As part of our investigation into this incident, we have studied CCTV from the station.

“I believe the man in the still we are issuing can help with our enquiries.

“I would urge anyone who recognises him to get in contact with us.”

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference WSUB/B5 of 28/07/2014, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
