A man is wanted by British Transport Police (BTP) officers after a woman was inappropriately touched in the Head of Steam public house at Huddersfield train station last month.

BTP has today released images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident, which took place on 27 January just after 3pm.

The victim, a 20-year-old woman from Huddersfield, was in the pub talking to a friend when a man walked in and began to verbally abuse her.

When she walked away he followed her then touched her inappropriately, running his hands down her back.

The man then proceeded to walk back into the bar area where he leaned over the bar and began to vigorously pull on the beer pumps, damaging them and causing beer and gas to be expelled onto the bar and floor.

He then left the pub, which is located in St George’s Square.
