Police will be reviewing CCTV to try and identify the man and appealed for information about the incident.

Detective Constable David McAllister, of British Transport Police (BTP), said: “The woman was left distressed by the incident and members of rail staff should be able to go about their duties without encountering such unsavoury and unwelcome behaviour.

“I am appealing for anyone who was on the train or at any of stations and has any information which could help the enquiry to get in touch with BTP.”

The suspect, who had been drinking, is described as being bald, aged in his 40s and of heavy build.

He was wearing a red shirt and a black jacket.
