Trouble on the train? Text the police

Now there is a discreet answer if your train or Tube ride is being made a misery by troublemakers.

The British Transport Police have launched a text service that allows travellers to report non-emergency incidents, such as drunken and rowdy behaviour.

If you send a send a text message to 61016 a police officer will be on the case, says the British Transport Police.

Similar to 101 phone numbers used by police forces, the text service will be monitored round-the-clock.

BTP deputy chief constable Paul Crowther said: ‘We know low-level anti-social behaviour, which occurs often later at night, is under-reported.

‘Passengers tend to accept or ignore the minority who make journeys unpleasant for everyone else.

‘We hope the ease of sending a quick text will encourage more passengers to report incidents when they occur.’

He said the texts would help the force focus resources to combat crime.
