Police warning over 'sexual behaviour' in Canary Wharf Tube toilets
Police have put up warning posters in the men's public toilets at Canary Wharf Tube station following reports of "inappropriate sexual behaviour".
The signs, jointly produced between British Transport Police and Transport for London, tell those using the facilities, "anti-social behaviour and criminal behaviour is taking place in this area".
BTP were informed of an incident in the toilets in June but believe more could have taken place.
A spokeswoman for British Transport Police said: "If you see any offence committed then please call 0800 405040 or text 61016."
One witness to a previous incident told The Wharf he walked into the toilets at the Underground station and saw three men, one of whom was on his knees, in front of the urinals.
"It was obvious what they were doing and I couldn't believe they were so brazen," he said. "What if it had been a child who had walked in and seen that."
Regular patrols are being carried out by officers and Tube staff, and police say CCTV recording is in operation to help catch culprits.
The sign states those found responsible could be banned from the toilets for "no less than two years" and "may also be convicted".
