Sexual harassment: Reports to transport police above pre-pandemic levels

Seems to be more a case of women more likely to report it now.
"If you look at the root cause of some the behaviours around sexual assault it all stems from sexual harassment."
Do you think you could get this through to The Met?

Years ago when I lived in London, I had to stop using the Underground because of perverts rubbing themselves against you in crowded carriages.
40 years later, one of my daughters said the man next to her on the (London) bus was openly watching porn on his phone.
I mean, what the fuck?

Before Covid, I had issues on multiple occasions with groups of drunken oil workers, who seemed to take particular offense that a lone female in the quiet car might want to read a book, rather than party with them. The train personnel couldn't do anything, other than move me to first class. This was usually on rather empty, early trains. They did ban alcohol on those trains, but that didn't really work. Perhaps if the conductors were more visible on the train, and more ready to call the transport police?
