British Transport Police (BTP) officers investigating the damage of a ceramic poppy at York railway station have released some CCTV images of a male they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
The incident happened at 21:28 hours on Saturday 23rd March.
Police have said that a male is reported to have approached the British Legion Poppy Wreath and snapped it in half.
He was reported to have been ‘very irate’ and in a group of seven to nine other men. The group exited the station in taxis at around 22:10 hours.
Officers believe that the man in the image may have information that could assist them with their investigation.
