Detectives from the British Transport Police have released CCTV images of the men as part of an appeal for the public to help identify them.

One man is suspected of threatening a member of staff at Devons Road station on the evening of December 15. Another is suspected of spitting at staff on the afternoon of December 20 at Limehouse station, and a third man is suspected of hurling homophobic abuse at staff on October 1 at Canning Town station.
