Detective Constable Helen Magill said: "The victim was sitting next to a man on the train as it headed out of London.

"She spoke to the man, before falling asleep. A short time later, the woman woke to find the man kissing and touching her inappropriately.

"The victim stood up quickly and moved to another seat.

"Do you know the man in the photos we have released today? This was a Saturday night-Sunday morning, 11 days before Christmas. Perhaps you were on that train, the 12.14am from London Victoria to Three Bridges.

"If you saw what happened, or recognise the man in either of the two CCTV images, please contact BTP."

Anyone with information on this incident should contact British Transport Police, on 0800 405040, quoting reference SSUB/B3 of 17 February 2015. You can also text BTP, on 61016. Information can be passed to independent Crimestoppers, on 0800 555111.
