Tommy Robinson supporter's sickening foul-mouthed racist rant on packed train

The middle-aged man, who was speaking in a thick Scottish accent, started screaming at a man on the London to Leeds service on Sunday.

He shouted: “You’re a black c***. You’re a black f*****. I’m with Tommy Robinson and you’re a black c***.”

The man added: “F*** off, you black c*** – you f***ing n*****.”

He later aggressively shouted a series of racial slurs at a woman after referencing the former English Defence League leader.

An unnamed passenger who witnessed the incident said the man was part of a large group returning from Mr Robinson's "Brexit betrayal" march in the capital on Sunday.

When questioned about the video, Mr Robinson, now a Ukip adviser whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, said: "I blame you the media for w****** like this thinking this is what I'm about.

"If this idiot knew what I stand for then he would know that many of the people I love are black."

He added: "If it's legit it's disgusting, and it angers me and frustrates me because misinformation is continually told about me and what I represent."

British Transport Police said it was investigating the video and had arrested two other men, both from Kettering, after being called to reports of a "large disturbance" on the service.

A 54-year-old man was held on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly and a 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of common assault at Bedford station.

After the man is seen repeatedly shouting at a woman on the service, shocked passengers are later seen disembarking the train at Bedford and speaking to police about the incident.

One woman tells the camera: "I've been racially discriminated on the train, and called a n****r… a black c***.

"He called all racist names, and we're in 2018.”

The incident follows a viral video of an incident at a school in Huddersfield, in which a Syrian refugee is seen being hurled to the floor by an English schoolboy.

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “Officers were called to Bedford station at 9.20pm on Sunday evening following reports of a large disturbance on board a Leeds bound train.

“A 54-year-old man from Kettering was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly, and a 50-year-old man also from Kettering was arrested on suspicion of common assault.

“Officers are also investigating footage which has emerged on social media of a man being racially abusive to passengers on board the same service.

“Anyone who witnessed what happened is asked to contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 499 of 09/12/18.”
