Police release name of ‘racist rant’ suspect

WANTED: Darren Daly, 43, is a suspect of racially aggravated public order offence

A MAN alleged to have racially abused a passenger on a London to Brighton train has been named by police.

British Transport Police want Darren Daly, 43, for questioning – he is wanted on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence.

Police said they have visited four addresses over the last few days, but have yet to locate the suspect.

Daly was caught on mobile phone video footage allegedly launching a foul-mouthed tirade against a black man, calling him “Godzilla”, “f**king gorilla”, “monkey”, and threatening to take out his eye and throw him under the train.

The video was uploaded onto YouTube on May 26.

Police confirmed they have circulated his image to other police forces and are checking CCTV footage to establish Daly’s whereabouts.

Investigators have urged anyone who has information to come forward.

Inspector Gary Ancell said: “I am urging Mr Daly to do the right thing and come forward and speak to us.

“Everyone has the right to travel without fear of abuse or threatening behaviour. We take all reports of racism extremely seriously, and will do all in our power to trace the man responsible.”
