A WOMAN who assaulted a train conductor after she was told to stop smoking aboard a train is wanted by police.

Officers from British Transport Police are urging anyone who recognises the woman, pictured, to call them.

The incident happened at approximately 8pm on Monday, April 23, aboard the 7.30pm Sheffield to Doncaster service as it travelled between Rotherham and Swinton.

PC Jeff Cole said: “When the female conductor challenged the woman she became aggressive and hurled verbal abuse at the conductor before allegedly pushing her several times.”

The suspect, who got off at Swinton, also tried to attack a passenger who intervened.
