The British Transport Police have today launched a CCTV appeal after a verbal altercation broke out between two men involving threats of violence on the 23.51 London King's Cross to Cambridge service on May 11, at around 12.50am.

The off-duty officer identified himself as a police officer and tried to intervene.

He attempted to remove one of the men from the train at Letchworth station, but he punched the officer in the face - causing him to fall to the floor.

The two men then began to fight each other, falling onto the officer as he lay on the floor.
