Tram Driver Tolerates Verbal Abuse and Spitting

The Croydon Guardian describes an incident in which a tram driver was subjected to a torrent of verbal abuse before being spat at by a passenger who was advised he could not bring his dog on board because it was not on a lead.

British Transport Police have issued an image of the man,  

Detective Sergeant Bob Stokoe said, "This was an appalling attack on a member of staff who was simply trying to do his job. Staff should be free to carry out their duties without fear of violence and abuse."
