We recently appealed for information to identify a group of men in relation to homophobic abuse against a passenger.

The incident happened on board a London Overground train from Highbury & Islington to Willesden Junction on Friday 31 March. 

Following the appeal, three people have come forward to speak to police in relation to the incident. 
Therefore we are no longer appealing for information regarding the people in the CCTV images and have removed the images from our website.
We ask that media outlets also remove the images from publication.
Thank you to the public and media for your assistance.
