Tonight's crimewatch featured the assault by a fare dodger on David, a member of staff of Forest Hill Station a few months ago. David who has been working on the railways for over twenty nine years suffered a double fracture of his knees and has been off sick. The CCTV clip is available on the BBC website. Hope you get well soon David.

The clip and details about the incident have been removed from the BBC website. I wonder if that means a suspect has been identified or even arrested? Perhaps they have to remove the information if a prosecution is likely, in order to ensure a fair trial?

Good...Its horrendous That someone can be attacked just for doing their job...And not a very well paid one either.
Hope the Suspect gets a long sentence.

Excellent news, now lets hope it results in a decent punishment. Maybe 1000 hours working with revenue protection for free will do the trick.
