Police have released images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a sexual assault on a train.

The victim, a 46-year-old woman, was touched inappropriately several times on the 11.30pm service from London Bridge to Sevenoaks train on May 10.

Officers have obtained CCTV film camera showing a man in a dark jacket and trousers with brown hair. The train stopped at Chislehurst, Petts Wood, Orpington, Chelsfied and Knockholt before Sevenoaks, where both the suspect and the victim left the train.

Detective Constable Bob Gee said: “Quite understandably this man’s actions left the victim intimidated and very distressed and we’ll do everything we can to catch him.”
