Police have released an CCTV image of a man they wish to speak with in connection to racist and homophobic abuse on a train journey.

Last month, the man boarded a train at Leeds with a friend and he sat across from two women and reportedly began hurling racist and homophobic abuse towards them.

According to police, the man and his friend left the train at Bradford Interchange.

Anyone who knows him is asked to contact BTP by texting 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40.
