Eight men have voluntarily attended a police station following an appeal relating to an alleged assault at an east London train station.

British Transport Police issued the appeal, publicised by the Recorder, earlier this week following the alleged incident at West Ham Underground station.

It was thought the suspects had travelled from Upminster.

Eight men aged between 19 and 26 have since visited an east London station, the force said.

Six will be interviewed today, with two set for questioning tomorrow.

Det Con Paul Miller said: “I would like to thank the public for their response to widespread media coverage of this appeal, which led to the men contacting police.”
