As part of our investigation into the death of a man outside Leeds train station we are issuing photos of two men we would like to speak to who we believe may have vital information which may assist our enquiries.

39-year-old Terry Bailey died following an incident outside the station in the early hours of Tuesday, 29 August.

Detective Chief Inspector Glen Alderson from BTP’s Major Investigation Unit said: “I would like to stress that the two men pictured are not believed to be directly involved in this incident in any way. We believe they may have witnessed a verbal altercation that took place before the fatal attack so it’s really important we talk to them.

“The West Indian carnival was on in Leeds that day and we believe the two men may have been part of a larger group who went to it. They then boarded a train at Leeds to Manchester Piccadilly, so it may be they live in that area.

“If you recognise yourself in the pictures, or know who the two men are please contact us on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 with reference 21 of 29/08. Alternatively information can be passed to the independent charity, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
