The footage, which shows a woman wearing purple headphones arguing with a man sitting opposite her, is believed to have been taken on Tuesday.

She uses a number of swear words as the argument between the two becomes increasingly heated, and the man gets up from his seat and is seen punching the woman.

A number of people pull him off her, and he accuses her of hitting him with a bottle.

Police believe the incident happened on a southbound Northern line service between Old Street and Moorgate.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said: “There is an allegation of abusive behaviour by the woman towards the man, but that doesn’t justify a violent response.

“The man and woman pictured in the images are seen arguing with each other on the video and we’re keen to speak to both of them to get their version of events.

“We urge them or anyone who knows them, as well as passengers who were on the train at the time, to come forward so we can begin to build a full picture of what exactly took place.”

Anyone with information call British Transport Police on 0800 405040 quoting reference B7/LUA of 10/01/13 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
