Police hunt thugs who battered officer and fractured his face in horror attack as he helped injured Tube passenger

POLICE are hunting two thugs who fractured an officer’s face in a sickening attack following England’s Euro 2020 loss.

The British Transport officer was providing urgent medical assistance to a man who had fallen down an escalator just after 11pm when he was brutally set upon at Camden Town Underground station.

He was approached by two men who punched him and hit him around the head as he tended to the medical emergency.

The officer was taken to hospital with fractures to his face and serious injuries to his shoulder and upper body.

The British Transport Police have now released CCTV images of two individuals – one wearing a red England shirt and the other in a bright orange jacket – who they want to speak to.

Detective Inspector Gary Pinner said: “This violent attack took place while one of our officers was helping a member of the public in need.

“As a result, he has suffered severe injuries. No officer should be subject to this while doing their job to keep passengers safe across the network.

“Violent and abusive behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated on the railway, whether directed towards the public, rail staff or our officers.”

Cops urged any witnesses who may have information to come forward.

It comes after a night of unrest in the capital after some England fans ruined a day of huge pride for millions of real fans yesterday as vicious fights broke out.

Anyone who recognises the men or has any information regarding the attack is urged to contact the BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 631 of 11/07/21.
