A man has been sentenced to six months in prison after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting two young girls.
Stephen Lott, of Turpin Lane, Collier Row, was convicted at Blackfriars Crown Court on December 18 after he approached a family on the District Line platform at South Kensington station and sexually assaulted the daughters aged five and eight by touching them over their clothing.
Lott, 37, was found guilty and sentenced after he pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault.
Investigating officer DC Allan McTaggart, said: “This sentence should serve as a reminder that the London Underground is a hostile environment for criminals.
“British Transport Police take any sexual offences extremely seriously, particularly those involving children, and anyone who commits sexual offences, of any kind, on the underground can expect to be arrested and convicted.”
