It happened at around 7.30pm on board the 7.26pm Leeds to Skipton service on Thursday, 18 June.

The victim, a 51-year-old woman from Keighley, boarded the service which was extremely busy, and asked a female who was sat with her feet on one of the seats to move them so she could sit down.

The female removed her feet but then began to verbally abuse the victim, who feeling uncomfortable, got up to move away. As she did so the female kicked her causing her to fall over into the train seats.

This was completely unacceptable behaviour and I am confident the woman pictured can help with our investigation. If you know her please contact us."
