Police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to after a Limehouse station worker was threatened with a knife.

The employee was cleaning the platform at the DLR station when a man, who is believed to have travelled from Woolwich Arsenal, threatened to harm him and showed him a knife which was concealed up his sleeve.
