Do you recognise these men? We’d like to speak to them in relation to railway obstruction offences.

At 11:30pm  on Wednesday 27 December, two men arrived at Cleethorpes train station and dropped down onto the tracks. The two men proceeded to press all of the stop plungers while one of the men shined a laser pen into the CCTV cameras inside the station.

The offenders then left the station in a red hatchback car.

Trans Pennine Express trains were severely delayed the following morning.

Officers believe the men shown in the CCTV images may have information which could help the investigation. 

Anyone with any information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 citing reference 147 of 28/12/17.
