The British Transport Police must crack down on these criminals - Davey

Commenting on the recent 'steaming' incident between New Malden and Norbiton stations, when hooligans robbed some train passengers, Edward Davey MP said:

"The British Transport Police must crack down on these criminals.

"I will be asking the chief of operations for the Transport Police, Mr. Paul Nicholas, for his plan of action, and what help he needs from South West Trains.

"For South West Trains also need to make passenger protection a top priority. They should consider on-train cameras and a permanent guard presence.

"Coming after the recent "steaming" incidents on trains on the Chessington South branch line, it's clear the Transport Police and SWT need a more concerted response."
