A police officer has been left with a broken leg after trying to intervene in an altercation between two men on a train.
The British Transport Police have today launched a CCTV appeal after a verbal altercation broke out between two men involving threats of violence on the 23.51 London King's Cross to Cambridge service on May 11, at around 12.50am.
The off-duty officer identified himself as a police officer and tried to intervene.
He attempted to remove one of the men from the train at Letchworth station, but he punched the officer in the face - causing him to fall to the floor.
The two men then began to fight each other, falling onto the officer as he lay on the floor.
The officer suffered a broken leg - which will require weeks off work - and minor facial injuries.
Officers believe the man in the CCTV images may have information which could help their investigation.
Anyone who recognises him, or has any information, should contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 41 of 11/05/19.
