Police have released an image of people they would like to speak to after a woman was threatened with a screwdriver on the London Underground.

The victim, 24, was travelling on the Central Line when she was approached by a woman holding a screwdriver. The woman was travelling with around seven teenagers, police said.

The Tube passenger got off at Marble Arch station but a man from the group followed and tried to snatch her e-scooter.

Passengers intervened as the man tried to push the victim to the floor. He then retreated and got back on the train.

British Transport Police have released a picture of people they wish to speak to as part of their investigation into the incident, which took place at around 4.10pm on February 11.
