Man sought in connection with Train surfing incident

THE British Transport Police have issued the following message:- "We'd like to speak to a male in connection with an incident in which a man calling himself the 'Silver Shadow' was spotted on CCTV on top of a train traveling at up to 100mph."

At about 1.30pm, on 11 December 2016, Police say that a man was seen boarding the exterior of a Merseyrail Train, in between 2 carriages and waiting for the doors to close, at Rock Ferry Station.

By 1.37pm, the same man can been seen on CCTV on top of the train at Bromborough Rake Station, waving at passengers as it passed through the Station.

He then got off the train at Bromborough Station and at 1.39pm, was briefly spoken to by Booking Office Staff. He concealed his face and told staff he'd travelled from Birmingham and was called the:- "Silver Shadow."

Investigating officer PC Andrew Richardson said:- "Even attempting to get on the top of a train is a nonsensical and idiotic thing to do. The man concealed himself between 2 carriages above electrified rails and so 1 slip could have easily killed him and endangered the lives of those on the train. This isn't cool, it isn't funny, it's dangerous and we will not stand for it. If you recognise the man in these pictures, please get in touch."

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on:- 0800 40 50 40 or text:- 61016, quoting:- 141 of 21/12.
