Police are appealing for information after a man was shot with a fake gun at Bromley-by-Bow station.

The 39-year-old suffered an injury to his lip after his attacker fired at him on board an eastbound Hammersmith and City Line train.

The victim had spoken to his attacker, who he believed was a beggar, before he was threatened and shot on March 23 around 11pm.

Det Con Gerard Hughes, investigating officer, said: “I am keen to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has any information relating to the incident that could help with investigation.

“I am keen to stress that incidents of this nature are extremely rare. We do not tolerate behaviour of this nature anywhere on the transport network.”
