The stolen items include a black iPhone 4, which has a crack on the reverse, and a brown leather wallet, containing bank cards, ID cards and a small amount of cash.

“The 23-year-old victim, from Ashford, Kent, was waiting on a bench on a London-bound platform shortly before 5am.

“He fell asleep and then a man sat next to him and removed the items, worth a combined £500, from his pockets before leaving the station.

We are issuing two stills of a man who we believe has information which can help us with our enquiries into this incident."
