The British Transport Police wants to trace a man who rode on a horse into Windsor & Eton Riverside Station and threatened staff. The incident happened on Sunday January 4th. He rode into the station around 3pm but when he was challenged by a staff member, he threatened them with a riding crop and racially abused them.
A busy railway station is no place for horses and rail operators have every right to refuse access to people with animals under the railway bye-laws. The member of staff was just doing their job and racial abuse and threats will not be tolerated.
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference B9(S-SUB) of 25/02/2015. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
After a bright start for many, clouds will thicken bringing rain for much of the afternoon.Read the full story ›

More than 80 percent of teachers in London say that children are eating the wrong foods in the morning, and most say they can tell just by watching their behaviour at school.
