Det Ch Insp Mark Cranwell said the attack on Mr Morrison happened outside Ilford train station "at a very busy time of the day".

He added: "There will have been a number of people who would have seen the incident involving Ché and the events that followed.

"We also know there was a group of males who are known to hang around regularly outside the station.
