He was verbally abused again before being struck in the face. It is believed he briefly lost consciousness and was still being punched when he came round.

A member of the public intervened and helped the victim to get home. He later received hospital treatment for significant facial injuries.

Officers are now in a position to release this image of someone they believe could have important information.

Police Constable Dan Carter, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“The victim was only trying to help another person when he was verbally attacked before being set upon by a group.

“We will not tolerate this sort of behaviour on Nottingham’s public transport and have been working hard to trace those responsible.

“If you recognise the individual pictured please get in touch immediately. I would also appeal to those involved in this assault to do the right thing and come forward.”
