British Transport Police officers has released a CCTV image of a man they are seeking in connection with an unprovoked attack on conductor in Flint.

At about 7.30pm on 16 July, the conductor was walking down the Llandudno to Manchester Piccadilly service when he came across a man without a ticket.

“The conductor was just carrying out his job when he was subjected to an unprovoked and unacceptable assault.

“I ask anyone who recognises the man from this image to get in touch immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting 494 of 16/7.
