That transport employees helping to keep this country moving during this unprecedented crisis should be subject to abuse of any kind, and racial abuse in particular, is unacceptable. Public transport workers deserve our unwavering support, and those who abuse them, physically or verbally, should be left in no doubt that they will be dealt with.
