British Transport Police want to speak to several men following antisemitic chanting on the 19:03 train from Watford Junction to Birmingham New Street on Saturday 15th August 2015. A group of West Ham supporters, who are believed to have left the train at Northampton, chanted antisemitic songs and were challenged by a man who boarded the train at Watford Junction.

PC Botterill stated:

“We know the vast majority of football fans are decent people, but for those who continue to make life unpleasant for the travelling public, our message is clear: we will not tolerate your yobbish behaviour. I think the men in the pictures we are issuing today, have information about this incident. Please let us know who they are.”

British Transport Police have issued an appeal for information:

“Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference MSUB/B4 of 12/10/2015. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111".

“"The Guardian of Israel doesn't slumber or sleep". This feeling of safety and security that we search for and need is gratefully appreciated when it's given to us by the CST. It really is a pleasure to work with the CST and to be looked after and cared for by them. Where ever I go throughout Britain, in all our Synagogues from north to south the impact and help given by the CST is warmly valued.”
