The Wharf - - The Week -

Three peo­ple were as­saulted on a DLR train at Shad­well in the morn­ing rush-hour last Wed­nes­day.

A teenage girl was shout­ing abuse at pas­sen­gers at 8.10am as the train was pulling into the sta­tion. Bri­tish Trans­port Po­lice of­fi­cers be­lieve she also punched a man on the train.

A mem­ber of staff at­tempted to in­ter­vene and the girl was racially abu­sive. Of­fi­cers were then called to the sta­tion but she hit an of­fi­cer.

A 15-year-old girl from Croy­don was ar­rested by of­fi­cers on sus­pi­cion of a racially ag­gra­vated pub­lic or­der of­fence, as­sault on a po­lice of­fi­cer and fare eva­sion. She was re­leased on po­lice bail.
