POLICE IN LONDON are attempting to track down a group of men, one with a “strong Irish accent,” for allegedly attacking and racially abusing a woman and her daughters.

The incident happened on a Route U1 bus, at 7.45 pm on Saturday 8 August.

The five men boarded the bus at Crown Walk in the west London neighbourhood of Uxbridge.

According to the Metropolitan Police, the alleged attack started with a row over seats.

Two of the group became involved in an argument with the woman over seating arrangements which culminated in both the woman and her 16-year-old daughter being punched and racially abused by two of the men.

The men also allegedly subjected her 11-year-old daughter to racial abuse, although she was not physically injured.

The two men, shown in the CCTV image above, are described as being white, and aged between 16 and 20.

Two others are shown in this composite of CCTV images released to the public by police today.
