The 49-year-old was arrested by Metropolitan Police officers in Aberdeen, Scotland.

He was later released with no further action to be taken.

A number 430 bus narrowly missed the woman after she was pushed into its path on Putney Bridge in May.

The man police are looking for is described as white, aged in his 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

He was wearing a light grey T-shirt and dark blue shorts with grey trainers.

We are continuing to investigate this incident and follow up leads as and when we receive new information about possible suspects.

We are grateful to those who have called in so far. I am also appealing for anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV stills, or with any information that might assist the investigation to contact police or Crimestoppers.
