A WOMAN is wanted by police after she launched a violent homophobic attack on two men on the tube after they asked her to “move her bag”.

The Met are keen to identify the woman who abused the men on board a Hammersmith and City line tube train on Thursday, August 9 2018.

The two men reportedly asked the woman if she could move her bag from a seat so they could sit down – the woman then shouted homophobic abuse at them.
