A member of rail staff was punched by a man at Peterborough Station who had been fined for not having a ticket.

At around 11.40am on Thursday, June 6, a Greater Anglia member of staff approached a man and asked to see his ticket. The man had no ticket and was issued with a penalty notice.

When the train arrived into Peterborough Station the man became increasingly aggressive, before swinging a punch at the victim.

Fortunately the victim, a man in his forties, did not sustain any serious injuries.

Officers believe the man shown in these CCTV images may have information which could help them investigate.
