POLICE want to speak to this man in connection with an assault on a train manager.

Officers from British Transport Police have just released CCTV images following the incident which took place on the platform at Moreton-in-Marsh station on Saturday, April 28 about 8.45pm.

The train manager was on board the 8.02pm Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington service and got off at Moreton-in-Marsh when a passenger who had been on the train started verbally abusing him before throwing punches at him.

The victim managed to avoid most of the man's blows but was struck on the shoulder.

The passenger, who appeared to be drunk, had come to the manager's attention earlier in the journey when he attempted to leave the train at Honeybourne Station while it was still in motion.

PC Alan Fishpool, who is investigating the incident, said: "Enquiries are ongoing to establish the identity of the man who assaulted the train manager.

"I am now appealing for anyone who knows the man in these CCTV images to contact British Transport Police, as I believe he will have information which can assist the investigation."

Anyone who knows the man’s identity, or his current whereabouts, is urged to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
