Police are trying to find a man spotted on CCTV after a couple were subjected to homophobic abuse on a train. The incident happened on Wednesday, 2 October as the couple were waiting at Stratford station. They suddenly noticed a man begin to stare at them.
PC Charley Sutherland-Walker from the British Transport Police said: "They boarded a Shenfield-bound train around 7.10pm along with the man who started a brief conversation with the pair.
"He then started to make homophobic comments towards the two in an aggressive and threatening manner, which made them both fear for their own safety. He left the train as it arrived into Maryland station and the pair continued onto Forest Gate station."
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40.
The Olympic velodrome in Stratford has been selected to host the 2016 Track Cycling World Championships. The decision to return to the venue where Britain won nine Olympic medals was confirmed yesterday evening.
The five-day competition is the final qualifying stage for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
We backed the 9/11 project when the sculpture first came to Battersea but finding a permanent home for it has proved incredibly difficult, whether it be opposition from Boroughs or bureaucrats. Clearly this can't continue.
As a result I've asked my team to find a permanent home for the sculpture on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The Park was home to a Games based on tolerance, harmony and respect, and will soon be home to a massive multi-dimensional and vibrant community - the perfect riposte to those who sought to divide the world on 9/11.
A memorial to the 9/11 terrorist attacks is being given a new home at the Olympic Park after being shunned by council bosses who refused to host it. The sculpture was salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Centre in New York and was a gift to the UK to honour the nearly 3,000 people who died.
