Two thugs launched an attack on a police officer as he tried to tend to a man who was injured on the tube.
The British Transport Officer was offering first aid to the man, who had fallen down an escalator, and was attending to the medical emergency.
Just after 11pm on Sunday, July 11, two thugs then approached the officer and punched him around the head.
They struck him and left the cop with serious injuries to his shoulder, upper body and fractured his face.
Following the horrific incident, British Transport Police (BTP) have launched an appeal and released CCTV images of two men they believe could help with their investigation.
One of the men was wearing a red England shirt in the footage, an hour after the devastating Euro 2020 loss.
The force, who are investigating the serious assault, say the attack took place at Camden Town Underground station.
They are also urging witnesses who may have information to come forward to help.
BTP have released a statement detailing how no officer should be violently attacked while carrying out their work.
