“The man clearly thought this was fun and a joke. In reality, this was completely unacceptable and inappropriate behaviour which was clearly distressing for many of the passengers on board what was a busy service.”

“If you recognise the man pictured, or know his whereabouts, then we’d like to hear from you. If you are the man pictured I’d urge you to come forward and take responsibility for your actions.”
