The victim of a train station assault was reportedly punched in the ribs, prompting police to release a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to.

Yesterday (June 12) British Transport Police (BTP) appealed to find a man in connection with an assault at Stratford station.

At about 10.50pm on May 16 this year, the victim was using the Oyster tap point in the station underpass before being punched and knocked to the floor by a stranger.

The assault was allegedly unprovoked and left the victim with a broken rib.
