Police have identified a man they wish to speak to in connection with a series of defibrillator thefts at train stations.
The British Transport Police (BTP) appeal follows incidents at Woodford and Leytonstone stations on Tuesday, April 5, at 12.55am and 5.40am respectively.
Other incidents took place at Bow Road, Loughton and Stratford stations on Saturday, April 2, at 1pm, 3pm and 10.15pm respectively.
Police say a man approached the defibrillator cabinet at the stations, opened it up and took the defibrillator out on each occasion.
He then either placed it into a bag or under his jacket and left.
