Three men, including a man from Surbiton, have been charged after a racially aggravated incident at London Waterloo Station on Armistice Day.

A series of protests took place on November 11 which saw hundreds of thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators marching through central London as well as demonstrations by counter-protesters.

Towards the end of the march, pro-Palestinian protesters also staged a sit-in at Waterloo Station.

British Transport Police said the racially aggravated incident occurred at around 5.30pm shortly after a demonstration was dispersed from the station.

James Thomas, 33 of Christchurch, Ian Beim, 57, of Surbiton, and Kevin Sweeney, 61, of West Molesey, were all charged with racially aggravated public order offences.

All three men were bailed ahead of court appearances in December.

Thomas is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on December 13 and Beim and Sweeney are due to attend the same court on December 18.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed more than 100 arrests were made on November 11.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak condemned “wholly unacceptable” actions by both far-right groups and “Hamas sympathisers” on Armistice Day, and insisted “all criminality must be met with the full and swift force of the law”.
