Officers at the British Transport Police (BTP) are asking for the public’s help to identify the man pictured, as they investigate the theft of a mobile on a train travelling between Stevenage and Peterborough.

The theft occurred in the early hours of Friday, July 26, on the 1.36am London King’s Cross to Peterborough service.

Pc Fiona Blackwell said: “The victim boarded the train at Stevenage at 2.20am and noticed after she left the train at St Neots that her phone, a white iPhone 4S worth £350, was missing from her bag, which was placed on the seat next to her.
