Detectives from British Transport Police have released a CCTV image to try and identify a man who died on the railway earlier this month.

Officers were called to the tram line between West Bromwich Central and Trinity Way station early on June 2nd, following a report of a person being struck by a tram.

A man died at the scene. His identity is still unknown.

The British Transport Police are urging anyone with information on him to come forward.

This was a tragic incident and we are working very hard to identify this man so we can offer his family support and let them know what has happened.

If you know who this man may be then I would urge you to contact us as soon as possible.

Since 2 June we have thoroughly examined the circumstances which led to his death. We are confident that there is nothing to say this death is suspicious.
