DO you recognise this man?

Officers investigating an incident of verbal abuse on-board a train in South West Wales have released this CCTV image in connection.

A man boarded a train at Neath station and attempted to alight at Briton Ferry station. The train doors would not open due to a malfunction and the train began to leave with the man still on-board.

The man then activated the emergency alarm and stopped the train. The train guard went to investigate, and the man proceeded to verbally abuse them. The train driver intervened and was also subjected to verbal abuse. The train continued to Baglan station and the verbal abuse towards the train crew continued until the train departed.

Officers believe the man in the CCTV image may have information which could help their investigation.
