Moment reveller heading home from the Notting Hill Carnival is battered

This is the moment a man and woman were brutally assaulted on a train after returning home from Notting Hill carnival.

The pair of revellers were accused of throwing food at a fellow passenger before they were attacked. 

In a video published to Facebook, a woman approached the pair asking if they had chucked a sandwich at her.

After they denied the act, which was not caught on camera, she told them: ‘Don’t make me take of my wig, I will punch you into next week.’

In the video, the attacker then takes her wig off and grabs hold of the white woman and repeatedly punches her in the head

Eventually a commuter split up the two woman, who continued arguing.
