Appeal to identify man found dead at railway station

Police are seeking the public’s help to identify a man who died after apparently being hit by a train.

Staff at Mount Florida station in Glasgow discovered a body there on Wednesday morning.

British Transport Police (BTP) and paramedics were summoned at around 11.30am, and the man, thought to be in his twenties, was pronounced dead at the scene.

BTP said its officers have carried out a number of inquiries, including fingerprint checks, but they have so far been unable to identify the man, who was last seen on CCTV near the station on Monday afternoon.

The man is described as sallow skinned, slim, with black cropped hair, stubble and a goatee beard.

He was wearing a red baseball cap, black jumper with a silver motif, blue jeans and black boots. He also had tattoos on both arms, which are believed to be of “an Egyptian theme”. 

Detective Inspector Brian McAleese said: “We are urgently trying to identify this man so we can locate his family and provide them with any support they need.”

BTP can be contacted by sending a text to 61016 or calling 0800 50 40 40, quoting reference 151 of January 2.
