A man broke his nose and leg after he was “pushed from behind and punched” at a Tube station, falling between the train and the platform.

British Transport Police have said that the incident happened at around 7pm on May 6 at Canning Town station, which serves the Jubilee line and DLR.

The victim was on the escalator when a woman allegedly pushed him in the back, causing him to stumble.

When he reached the platform, he was allegedly pushed from behind “with force” by a man.

The victim ended up falling between the train and the platform, leaving him with a broken leg.

The same man also allegedly punched the victim several times in the face, breaking his nose.

Officers have now released images of two people who they believe may have information that could help with their investigation.
