A woman has launched a hunt for a cheating boyfriend called 'Ben' after she heard him boast about bedding other women while travelling on a train.

Emily Shepherd, 23, was on a service from Bournemouth to Manchester when she heard the love rat tell his friends about his conquests.

She quickly posted a warning to Ben's partner on Twitter and told them to 'Dump his ass.'

She wrote: 'If anyone has a boyfriend called Ben on the Bournemouth - Manchester train right now, he’s just told his friends he’s cheating on you. Dump his ass x'

Emily posted the tweet just after 9am on Friday, but two days later Ben is yet to be revealed.

She later tweeted: 'For those asking: Ben is yet to be found, I've had several messages but nothing yet.

'I'm now on the Manchester - Bournemouth train and no sign yet... thanks to everyone calling me a grass and a snake, you're all great.'?

The post was retweeted 24,000 times with tweeters wading in to help identify the unfaithful partner.

Among those hoping to reveal Ben's identity was Dragon's Den judge Deborah Meaden, who tweeted: 'Dear cheating Ben... can you please make yourself known before all the non cheating Bens find out where you live...'

Comedian Katherine Ryan also waded in, tweeting: 'Good work, Em.'

When one man hit back, noting there were 'probably several Bens on the train', she said: 'Dump them all to be safe.'

She later added: 'Ben is trash.'

While some praised Emily for her attempts to expose Ben's unfaithful behaviour, she has also been told to 'mind her own business'.

One poster quipped: '50 Bens just got dumped.'?

While another wrote: 'Maybe Ben is just full of bravado in front of his mates and you are all seeking to ruin a happy relationship.

'Whatever happened to privacy and secrecy or just minding your own business??

After one tweeter called her a snake, a poster leapt to her defence saying: 'Why,because she exposed a dude for not treating a girl right??

'If the shoe was on the other foot you boys would be speaking nothing but hell about this girl, saying she being disrespectful and all that. Stop praising and promoting cheating.'?
