A rise in violent and sexually related crime at train stations has lead to a call for a "higher police profile" from the rail workers union.
Commenting on a report on vulnerable children at railway stations, Manuel Cortes, leader of the TSSA rail union, said:
While we welcome the overall fall in railway crime, we are concerned about the worrying rise in serious crime, assault, up 6%, racially aggravated, up 13% and sexual offences, up 21%.
We would like to see a higher police profile at stations and on trains which would act both as a deterrent whilst also providing security and reassurance for the travelling public.
