British Transport Police (BTP) have a released an image of a woman they want to speak to in connection with the theft of a suitcase from a train on Sunday, August 11.

Investigators hope members of the public may recognise the woman pictured and help police identify her.

PC Cheryl Bainbridge is investigating. She said: “The victim, a 27-year-old woman from Manchester, boarded a train to Edinburgh at York station around 2.55pm.

“She placed her suitcase in the luggage rack and took her seat further down the carriage. When she arrived at Edinburgh Waverley station, she noticed that her case was missing.”

Officers have followed several lines of enquiry into the incident, reviewing CCTV from stations along the route. They have obtained an image of a woman who left the service at Berwick-upon-Tweed who they believe can assist them.

PC Bainbridge continued: “If you recognise the woman pictured, or know her whereabouts, then please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference B4/NEA of 20/09/2013. Information can be passed to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
