Officers are appealing for information following an incident where a man was seen to be in possession of a gun at Basildon rail station.

The incident happened on Wednesday 4 April between 5.40am and 5.50am.

A man and a woman entered the station at around 5.45am. The man approached the ticket line and spoke with a staff member and then forced his way through the barrier.

He was told to leave the station when he reached the platform.

The man left the booking hall via the main exit door but before he did, he turned to face staff members and pulled out, what staff believed was a gun and pointed it towards them. He then left the station and was followed by the woman.

Officers would now like to speak to the man and woman in the CCTV image as they believe they may have information that could help with the investigation.

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference 66 of 04/04/18.
