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.

– Detective Constable Rod Harbron
