Rayleigh woman's £200 coat stolen on train

Southend Standard: The suspect. The suspect.

A RAYLEIGH woman had her £200 coat stolen on a train to Liverpool Street.

Police have released a CCTV image of a suspect they want to speak to about the theft, which took place on January 1 at 10am.

Dc Nick Thompson from British Transport Police said: “The victim, a 36-year-old woman from Rayleigh, boarded the train at Rayleigh and got off at London Liverpool Street on New Year’s Day.

“A short time later, she realised she had left her coat, a black Keela waterproof coat worth £200, on the train, on the seat next to her in the first carriage by the second set of doors.

“Later the train then left the station heading back out towards Southend. Officers checked Liverpool Street station but the coat was not handed in.”

Officers have liaised with colleagues from local police forces and viewed CCTV footage from the stations involved, and are now appealing to members of the public for their assistance.

It is believed the suspect boarded the train out of Liverpool Street at Stratford, in the direction of Hockley, and may be from the Newham area of London.

Dc Thompson added: "I would urge anyone who has any information about this theft or about the man pictured to get in touch with police, and to help us reunite this item with its rightful owner.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting background LNA/B6 of 30/01/14. Information can also be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Whilst people should take care of their property - is still does not mean that thieving SCUM can take other peoples things.

He does not look like he is from Newham.

The coat was left on the train, I don't blame the guy at all, if he hadn't taken it someone else would have done. If would have been nice if he gave it back but lets not demonize him & certainly no need to waste police time, better things to be focusing on.

It beggars belief. In this country there always has been a sharp divide between the haves and have-nots. With people in the not so well off areas coming down in the morning to find their hard earned properties gone, whilst being ripped off by the better off under this massive "It's all Labour's fault" con, you think everyday people will feel sympathy with someone who can splash out £200 for a coat then leave it on a train?

What does a person who comes from Newham look like then? Where does he look like he might come from? I confess I have never been able to place a person's residence from a blurry photo, nor even from a close up personal view.
