British Transport Police is appealing for information after a man racially-abused a taxi driver outside Leeds Railway Station and kicked his car.

Officers have released an image of a man they believe can help with their enquiries into the incident, which took place at 11pm on Saturday, May 24 May, outside the front of the station.

PC Carl Johnstone, the investigating officer, said: “A man and woman got into a taxi outside the station, requesting to be taken to Normanton. When asked by the driver, a 21-year-old man from the Harehills area, for payment up front, the man became abusive. When the driver asked the couple to leave, the man got out of the car and racially-abused the driver, then kicked the car door, leaving a large dent.
