Police have launched an appeal for witnesses after a man was knocked unconscious on-board a London Bridge train on Friday evening.

The victim was assaulted when he asked a man to stop behaving anti-socially on the delayed 7.59pm service to Gravesend, Kent.

The thug then attacked him, knocking him unconscious and breaking his leg, police said.

Emergency services rushed the man to hospital, where he was still receiving treatment on Saturday.

DS Allan McTaggart, of the British Transport Police, said: “I’d appeal to anyone who witnessed this incident or believes they may have information to get in touch with us as soon as possible.
“This was a particularly nasty assault and one we are taking extremely seriously.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 and quoting reference 26 of 17/11/18.
