The man identified as, Aniefiok Udo, was reportedly spared jail term after confessing to a string of sexual assaults on the London Tube.

Udo pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault on December 14 and has been handed a 16-week suspended sentence, while he is now banned from approaching any woman unknown to him while using public transport for the next five years.

Udo, 49, from Ilford, reportedly assaulted the same 23-year-old woman on two separate occasions while en route the Central Line last year. 

Udo is reported to have approached her and began touching her unceremoniously, after boarding the train at Hainault station at about 9pm on both occasions.

After the young woman reported the incidents to police in January, another woman was reported to have come forward to say she had been assaulted by the same man.
