A new poll by Thomson Reuters Foundation shows that 45% of women would like a female only tube carriage. The poll found women in London felt less safe on public transport than those in New York, Beijing and Tokyo.
Assistant Chief Constable Mark Newton of the British Transport Police responded to the survey and urged Londoners to report incidents they witness on public transport so the police can better crack down on perpetrators and prevent similar crimes.
