BTP Sergeant Kelvin Rowlands, said: “We are working closely with Network Rail on this investigation and we ask who knows the identity of those involved, or who has any further information about the incident, to contact us by texting 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 – quoting the reference number 900114385.

Alternatively, you can provide any information anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
