Police have today released the images of four men they would like to speak to after a man suffered a fractured skull in a vicious attack at Liverpool Street station.

The victim, who is in his 20s, was knocked to the ground by a group of men and repeatedly kicked and punched during the unprovoked attack on the underground platform.

Officers from British Transport Police (BTP) rushed to the scene and arrested three men but would like to also speak to the four captured on CCTV at the station.

DC Oliver Carne from BTP, said: “The victim sustained a number of nasty facial injuries, including a fractured cheek bone as well as a fracture to his skull and eye socket.

“This was a seemingly unprovoked assault and I ask the four men in these images to come forward and make contact.

“Likewise, I would be keen to speak with anyone who recognises these men.”

Anyone with information about the attack, which took place on November 4 at around 4am, should contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 82 of 04/11/2018.
