Police are appealing for information after a man was strangled by a passenger in an unprovoked assault while the pair travelled on a bus in the Earls Court area.

It happened at around 13.50 hrs on Saturday 1 December on a bus travelling between Victoria and White City. Police say the attack lasted for around 30 seconds
