A fare evader who hurled the “worst racial abuse” a worker at Liverpool Street station has ever heard has been given a suspended jail sentence.
Katherine Robinson spewed out the obscenities after she was challenged for travelling without a ticket on January 12.
Bromley Magistrates’ Court heard the 23-year-old from Hornsey, north London, threatened the worker’s family and continued to shout abuse as the police arrived.
She then launched herself at him, head-butting him in the chest.
Robinson was convicted of a racially aggravated public order offence and a Section 4 public order offence aggravated by homophobic abuse.

She was sentenced to 18 weeks in jail suspended for a year and has been given a Criminal Behaviour Order banning her from travelling without a valid ticket, giving false details to staff and loitering in any station or train.
Nicola Grayson from British Transport Police said Robinson “poses a significant risk of re-offending.”
