APPEAL FOR INFORMATION AFTER PASSENGERS JUMP WALL TO AVOID PAYING FARES – HEREFORD
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for the public’s help to identify a man and a woman they would like to speak to in connection with an incident at Hereford railway station.
Officers have today released a CCTV image of the couple they believe will have information which can assist the investigation.
PC Luke Davis, investigating officer, said the incident took place at around 9.30am on Monday 14 November 2011.
“Station staff at Hereford reported that a man and a woman, who had boarded a train at Worcester Foregate Street rail station, had no tickets when they arrived at Hereford shortly before 9.30am on Monday 14 November,” PC Davis said.
“They became abusive towards members of staff at the station before avoiding the ticket barriers and jumping over a wall and leaving the station without paying for their fares.
“Enquiries are ongoing and, after viewing CCTV images from the station, I would like to identify and speak to the people in this photograph as I believe they will be able to assist the investigation.
"Fare evasion is a serious issue and we will do everything possible to ensure that those intent on defrauding the railway are brought to justice.
“We will continue to work closely with our partners in the rail industry to ensure that honest, fare-paying customers are not subsidising the rail travel of fare evaders.”
