Goodall, 42, of Poplar Mount, Bramley, and Loftus, 28, of no fixed address, were remanded into custody until their next hearing on September 28.

But investigators are continuing to build their case and believe there are others out there who could hold valuable information.

Detective Chief Inspector Glen Alderson, from BTP’s Major Investigation Unit, said: “Upon viewing CCTV a number of people who we have yet to speak to can be seen in the area.

“If that was you or if you were in the area of New Station Street outside Leeds station just before 1am on August 29 and witnessed the incident, or have other information please contact us.

"Any detail, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, could help the investigation.”

Call 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 with reference 21 of 29/08.

Information can also be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
