Natasha Hamilton was left feeling “violated” after she was ‘sexually assaulted’ on a rush hour train last night.
The Atomic Kitten singer, 36, was travelling on a Southeastern service from London Bridge to Elmstead Woods in south-east London when the alleged incident occured.
Sharing a photo of the man she claims is the perpetrator on Twitter, she tweeted: “This vile excuse of a man just had his penis pushed up against me while on the overground train from London Bridge heading to Elmstead Woods.
“I thought it was a bag until I felt him heavy breathing down my neck. I am appalled and calling the transport police when I get off!
“Honesty I am shaking and feel so violated now! But more than anything I am so angry!! I had the opportunity to take his picture before he left the train – this has to stop happening to people.”
The incident took place on 5.20pm on Wednesday evening when the train was busy with commuters returning home from the city.
Following Natasha’s tweet, the British Transport Police replied to her on social media, appealing for her to report it.
In a statement to Mirror Online, a spokeswoman said: “British Transport Police are aware of a report on social media of a sexual assault on a train to Bromley yesterday.
