Police have released CCTV footage of a woman they wish to identify and speak to in connection with an assault on a bus.
The woman pictured and a younger woman got on an 86 bus on June 16 just before midday in Romford with two push chairs and went to the pram area of the bus.
Minutes later, the 29-year-old Asian victim got on the bus at London Road, Romford, with her five-year-old son and was confronted by the two women.
A dispute erupted over where prams should be moved to resulting in a woman becoming angry and violent towards the victim and nearby passengers.
The victim was slapped across the face in front of her son and passengers, causing a laceration to her upper lip.
