Woman wanted after assault at Waterloo Tube station which left victim in hospital for days

The British Transport Police (BTP) have released an image of a woman they want to speak to after an assault at Waterloo Tube station in February.

The incident took place on escalators at Waterloo Tube station at around 7.40pm on February 13.

A person was seen shouting on a Jubilee line train before getting off at Waterloo and heading towards the escalators.

Upon reaching the escalator, the person pulled down a six-foot poster stand, causing it to fall on to the victim and land on their ankle.
