TWO members of staff were racially abused and threatened at a train station.

Police have released an image of man they want to speak to in connection with the incident, which happened just before 11pm on November 4.

It comes after the two Travel Safe Officers, who patrol Greater Manchester's transport system, were subject to racial abuse by a man described as "heavily intoxicated".

The person in question was trying to purchase a ticket at the barrier line at Manchester Victoria station when he began to racially abuse members of staff, using multiple slurs.

When the Travel Safe officers began to escort the man out of the station he became racially abusive to them too.

He threatened to 'knock one of them out' and told him to go back to his own country.

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