Police have issued pictures of two black females wanted over a suspected hate crime after a Muslim woman was punched and kicked on a London bus.

Officers were called to the incident on the number 63 service in London Road, Southwark, on 28 October after witnesses allegedly heard the suspects shouting racist and Islamophobic abuse.

The woman, who is in her 40s, was badly shaken and taken to a central London hospital for treatment. She has since been discharged.

The bus was travelling from Kings Cross to Peckham and police believe a number of passengers may have filmed the incident and taken pictures of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
