Passengers urged to help sexual harassment victims on Tube and buses

Passengers were on Monday given advice on how to help fellow travellers they see suffering sexual harassment on the Tube or bus.

A poster and social media campaign advised them to attempt to cause a distraction by asking the victim “What’s the next stop?”, or “Do you have the time?”.

The initiative comes after an 81 per cent increase in reported sexual harassment on public transport in London, the vast majority targeted at women and schoolgirls.
