Detectives from British Transport Police are appealing for information after the attack on the HS1 service from London St Pancras to Dover Priory at 9.30pm on Tuesday, August 15.

A man, who appeared intoxicated was unknown to the 20-year-old victim, allegedly started talking to her, began making inappropriate comments to her and then moved to sit next to her.
