A CCTV image of man police want to speak to after a ticket inspector's cheekbone was broken after he was punched has been released.

British Transport Police said the inspector was approached by a man who got on a train at Faversham.

He asked to purchase a ticket, but when his card was initially declined he punched the ticket inspector.

The attack happened on the 14:53 GMT Victoria to Ramsgate train on 18 February.

Det Con Bob Gee said: "This was an unprovoked attack on a man who was simply trying to do his job.

"As a result of being punched, he is currently receiving treatment, including facial surgery, for his injuries."
