The female conductor had intervened with a group of rowdy male passengers on the Londonderry to Belfast service when one of the men grabbed her. She was also verbally abused.

The conductor was then grabbed for a second time by another member of the group as they were exiting the train at Mossley West.

Sergeant Cullen said: “The conductor was left extremely shaken and upset by the ordeal. It is appalling that a woman was subjected to such attacks while simply doing her job.

“We are investigating and would like to hear from witnesses. Please call 101, quoting reference number 1384 14/04/18.”
