Appeal after man electrocuted after boarding train in Plumstead

British Transport Police have released an image to identify a man who boarded a train at Plumstead and subsequently died at London Bridge station.

According to the BTP: “Police were called to London Bridge station at around 5.30am on 25 March, following a report of an off-duty officer requiring assistance.

While officers were responding, a man went onto the tracks and sustained serious injuries, believed to be consistent with electrocution. Despite the best efforts of paramedics, they were very sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

As is routine when someone dies following police contact, a referral was made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct who have now launched an investigation.

Despite extensive enquiries in the UK and abroad, the man has still not been identified and officers have been unable to inform his family.

He is believed to originate from Canada and is 5ft 10 and of slim build, and was last seen boarding the train in Plumstead. He has numerous tattoos, including a Star of David on his chest.

If you recognise him, or have any information, please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 36 of 25/03/20.
