Officers from British Transport Police (BTP) are encouraging passengers to report any unwanted sexual behaviour on the transport network.

A short film called Report it to stop it, promoted through Video on Demand channels such as All4 (formerly 4OD), Now TV and YouTube, follows a woman’s journey in which she experiences escalating incidents of unwanted sexual behaviour on board a train.

Viewers are encouraged to interact with the film by deciding at which point they would report the incident by texting 61016.

Richard Mann, Detective Superintendent of British Transport Police, said: “Everyone has the right to travel on the transport network safely and we will not tolerate any unwanted sexual behaviour.

“We want the travelling public to feel confident that we take every sexual incident seriously, no matter what has happened, and we believe what is reported to us.”
