Four men are being sought by police following a racially aggravated altercation that took place at Waterloo station yesterday.

British Transport Police (BTP) shared an image of the men asking: “Do you recognise any of these individuals?”

It added: “Officers are looking to speak to the individuals in the images who they believe may have information that could help their investigation.”

Footage shared on X, formerly Twitter, shows a group of men shouting at pro-Palestinian protesters. The force said senior detectives are reviewing the footage.

Israel-Gaza latest: ‘Health catastrophe’ warning over decomposing bodies

BTP also said another man, filmed in a separate video shouting at a Muslim woman, has been arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence.

He is currently in police custody.

Dozens of counter-protesters were arrested as hundreds of thousands of people took part in a pro-Palestinian demonstration in central London.

Yesterday, the Metropolitan Police said it had arrested 92 right-wing protesters after violent clashes with the police.

Nine officers were injured, two requiring hospital treatment, as they prevented a violent crowd getting to the Cenotaph while a remembrance service was taking place.

Arrests from both marches

In total, more than 126 people were arrested from across both demonstrations.

A number of people are also being sought “in relation to a hate crime” from Saturday’s pro-Palestinian march.

Hundreds of thousands of people took part in a march in the capital on Saturday, calling for a ceasefire in Israel’s war against Hamas, which is designated a proscribed terrorist group by the UK.

While the demonstration remained largely peaceful, images quickly began circulating online showing several protesters carrying antisemitic placards.
