British Transport Police have released images of a man they want to speak to after a teenage girl, travelling with her mother, was sexually assaulted on a Jubilee line train.

The incident happened on a busy service between Canary Wharf and North Greenwich at 6pm on Monday, June 9.

Detective Constable Darren Davies said: "A 16-year-old girl was touched inappropriately by a man on the train.

"The girl's mother confronted the man responsible and, on arriving at North Greenwich, reported the incident to a member of station staff.

"The man denied the allegations and boarded another eastbound train shortly afterwards."
