London mayor Sadiq Khan has pledged to work with the capital’s police forces to tackle hate crime on London’s transport network.
There has been a rise in reports of racist or xenophobic abuse in London since the EU referendum, and Mr Khan is urging people in the city to stand together in support of a campaign that targets all crime of this nature on public transport.
He says: “I am proud of the incredible diversity of our city and nowhere is this more evident than on our buses and trains. I will not tolerate hate crimes of any form anywhere in London.”
Transport for London funds over 3,000 police and police community support officers dedicated to policing London’s transport network.
