|Transport Police Release E-fit of Man Killed at North Acton|
Officers seek help from public to establish his identity
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are seeking help from the public to identify a man who was killed at North Acton rail station.
The man was killed around 1.30pm on Saturday, 26 June 2010 after falling on to the tracks, possibly from a bridge on Victoria Road, which runs above the tracks.
Police and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Enquiries to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident, including how the man came to be on the tracks are ongoing. Officers are treating the incident as non-suspicious.
BTP coroner’s liaison officer Gary Mathias said that despite extensive efforts to establish the man’s identity – including fingerprint analysis and checks with the Missing Persons Bureau – officers have so far been unable to find out who he is.
"We’ve made extensive enquiries to establish his identity but unfortunately we have so far been unable to do so.
"It's very unusual that we would release an e-fit image of someone in these circumstances but it's very important, that we contact his family and those close to him to let them know what has happened.
"Our specialist forensic artist created an e-fit of him and we are releasing it in the hope that someone may recognise him, even if they don't know him well, and come forward to us with information that could help us identify him."
"This man may be someone’s son, brother or father. If you know someone matching the e-fit or description we are keen to hear from you so we can identify him and inform his family as soon as possible."
The man is described as white with short, dark, receding hair, facial stubble and brown eyes.
He was wearing a dark blue jacket, khaki trousers and black canvas shoes.
Anyone with any information that can assist the investigation into the incident is asked to call British Transport Police free on 0800 40 50 40 quoting background incident 261 of 26/06/2010.
