Police want to identify a man seen after a series of racist stickers were placed on trains in Southend.
A CCTV image of a man has been released following the discovery last month, and officers urge anyone who recognises him to get in contact.
PC Maria Wheele said: "Rail staff cleaning trains the week of Sunday, 18th January found stickers carrying offensive messages. Passengers travelling between Essex and London that week might have seen something.
"If anyone recognises the man in the CCTV image, please contact us."
Police are have released images of a man they want to speak to, after a man exposed himself to a woman on a Jubilee Line tube train between Green Park and Dollis Hill stations.
British Transport Police said the 21-year-old Spanish woman boarded the train alone at around 11.40pm on 12th September and was sat in almost-empty carriage.
As the train left Kilburn a man sitting opposite her indecently exposed himself and began to touch himself inappropriately.
The woman left the train at Dollis Hill, but was followed by the man. She approached a member of staff, at which point the man re-boarded the same train which then left the station.
I am urgently trying to trace the man pictured, as I think he might be able to greatly assist the investigation. If you recognise him, or have any other information, please get in touch with BTP as soon as possible.
