A man rode into a railway station on a horse and threatened staff with a whip.

British Transport Police (BTP) have confirmed that he rode into a Berkshire railway station, where he racially abused people inside.

Detective constable Rod Harbron, who is leading the investigation, said: "At approximately 3pm a man on horseback rode into the booking hall and headed towards the platforms.

"When challenged by a member of station staff, he racially abused them and threatened to assault them with a riding crop."

DC Harbron added: "A busy railway station is no place for horses and rail operators have every right to refuse access to people with animals under the railway byelaws."
