Keighley's biggest bus company is involved with a new campaign against hate crimes on public transport.

Transdev is part of the recently-formed Safer Transport West Yorkshire, along with police and the transport authority Metro.

The organisation wants to increase the reporting of hate crime incidents against both drivers and passengers.

Safer Transport West Yorkshire has appointed a police liaison officer, Sergeant Rachel Claughton.

She said: “These type of hate incidents often go unreported, leaving people to suffer in silence. Any abuse, be it racist, homophobic, religious or any other hate crime, is unacceptable.

“Hate crimes have a devastating effect on individuals and communities. Victims will have full support and all incidents will be investigated thoroughly and compassionately.”
