The British Transport Police (BTP) released a CCTV image earlier this month of men they wanted to interview.

It came after an incident on the afternoon of December 13, when three men made sexual remarks to a 13-year-old girl onboard the train.

One then touched her thigh and, when she pointed to her school blazer, made sexual comments about her. They prevented her from moving to another carriage.
