A man who took pictures up a woman’s skirt with a camera at Angel Tube station has been arrested.
The 27-year-old from Wellingborough was held on Friday night at about 7.20pm for outraging public decency.
The arrest was part of Project Guardian, a London-wide crackdown on sexual assault and harassment by the British Transport Police (BTP).
From July 14 to 18, a total of 13 people were arrested for a range of sexual offences on the capital’s trains, Tubes and buses.
Chf Sup Paul Brogden, from BTP, said: “Our message is clear – we want passengers to feel confident on their journey and to know exactly where to turn when they need help.
You may also want to watch:
“A lot of victims do not report their experiences to us, for a number of reasons. Some worry that they won’t be taken seriously, or there is little that can be done to stop sexual crime, but this is not the case – you don’t have to suffer in silence.
“We will always be there to listen and will do everything we can to find those responsible. Unwanted sexual behaviour on the transport network is completely unacceptable and we will do everything we can to support you and bring offenders to justice.”
