British Transport Police would like to trace this man, who was captured on CCTV near to Newark railway station and may have information about a fatality that occurred just outside the station.

Detectives from British Transport Police are appealing for help to trace a man who was captured on CCTV near to where a Doncaster rail worker was hit by a train last month.

Officers investigating the death of Network Rail worker John Wright, who was struck by a train outside Newark station, believe the man may have information which could assist their investigation into his death.

Mr Wright, aged 49, from Scawsby, was hit by a train at 11.39am on Wednesday, January 22, and died later in hospital.

Det Insp Stuart Mellish said: “We don’t believe there are any suspicious circumstances surrounding John’s death, but we are conducting a thorough investigation into the events that led up to him being hit by the train and are trying to piece together all the information possible.

“The man in the photo was captured on CCTV close to the location where John was struck. We have already spoken to a number of witnesses but would like to trace this man who may have important information about what happened to John immediately before the accident.”

BTP can be contacted on 0800 40 50 40 or via text on 61016 or information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In all calls quote log 179 of 22/01/14.
