PO­LICE have re­leased CCTV im­ages of a group of men they would like to speak to in con­nec­tion with a racially ag­gra­vated as­sault on a bus in Uxbridge.

Of­fi­cers are ap­peal­ing for help to trace five young men af­ter a woman, 40, and her 16-year-old daugh­ter were punched and racially abused on the route U1 bus on the evening of Satur­day, Au­gust 8.

The woman’s younger 11-year-old daugh­ter was also racially abused by the men, but was not phys­i­cally in­jured.

All five men boarded the bus at Crown Walk, Uxbridge, at about 7.45pm.

In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, po­lice are also ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion af­ter a pen­sioner was knocked to ground and had her hand­bag stolen in a ‘nasty and cal­lous at­tack’.

At the time of

the in­ci­dent, the bus was on Vine Street, Uxbridge head­ing in the di­rec­tion of West Dray­ton, when a woman, who was trav­el­ling with her two daugh­ters, was at­tacked by two of the men in an ar­gu­ment over seat­ing.

Both the woman and her teenage daugh­ter were hurt but did not re­quire med­i­cal treat­ment for their in­juries. The two men are de­scribed as white and aged be­tween 16 and 20 years old; one was bare-chested at the time, the other spoke with a strong Ir­ish ac­cent.
