British Transport Police said: "Inquiries are ongoing and officers are continuing to appeal for information."

Detective Inspector Granville Sellers said officers would particularly like to speak to anyone who was at the station between 5am and 6.30am on January 12, who may have seen something or somebody which caught their attention.

"It may have seemed insignificant at the time but it could prove vital to the investigation."
