Po­lice are con­tin­u­ing to hunt for three men who sub­jected a woman to a tirade of racial abuse whilst on a train to Cam­bus­lang.

The three men started tak­ing pic­tures of her on the rush hour train and then shouted at her, call­ing her “white trash” and other names.

British Trans­port Po­lice are now ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion from any­one on the train who may have wit­nessed the ter­ri­fy­ing in­ci­dent.

The woman was trav­el­ling on the 5.36pm train from Wishaw to Glas­gow Cen­tral on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 14.

Af­ter racially abus­ing her, the men got off the train at Cam­bus­lang and then made sex­ual ges­tures towards her, be­fore leav­ing the sta­tion.

The men were Asian, in their twen­ties and all around 5ft 8ins tall. One was of medium build and was wear­ing a black jacket, dark jog­ging bot­toms and dark train­ers.

An­other was wear­ing blue jeans and the third man was wear­ing grey Nike track­suit bot­toms.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer PC Vic­to­ria Gra­ham said: “This in­ci­dent hap­pened on a packed com­muter train and so I think there may have been a lot of peo­ple who wit­nessed the in­ci­dent but may not have re­alised the dis­tress it was caus­ing the vic­tim.

“She was very up­set and dis­tressed by what had hap­pened and for some­one to be made to feel like this is com­pletely un­ac­cept­able.

“If any­one saw what hap­pened, please do come for­ward and let us know.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quot­ing 497 of 14/10.
