Do you recognise Leeds rail victim?

Police desperate to identify a man killed when struck by a train near Leeds today issued an e-fit likeness of the dead man.

British Transport Police have taken the rare step of releasing an image of a dead person after their inquiries failed to discover the identity of the man killed last Thursday(Dec 9 ) at Woodlesford Railway Station.

The victim was struck by the 4.37pm Leeds to Sheffield Northern Rail train as it passed through the station at 4.57pm.

Paramedics and police officers were called to the station but the man was pronounced dead at the scene of the impact.

There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surround the death.

Despite extensive efforts to establish the man's identity – including fingerprint analysis and checks with the Missing Persons Bureau – officers have so far been unable to find out the name of the man or where he comes from.

The man is described as white, 6ft tall and at the time he was wearing a black beeny hat, black bomber jacket, blue fleece, black t-shirt and black trainers. We was also wearing glasses.
