British Transport Police (BTP) said the images were taken at St Pancras International station in London at around 8pm on February 18.

This was the day after an incident on the Paris Metro before Chelsea’s match with Paris St Germain when a black man was shoved off a train and subjected to alleged racist abuse.

BTP Det Sgt Steven Graysmark said: “I want anyone who knows the men in the photographs to come forward. I believe the seven, thought to be Chelsea fans, can help us with the investigation.

“Do you know any of the men in the images? If so, please contact BTP.”

Anyone with information on the incident should contact British Transport Police, on 0800 405040, or by text, on 61016, quoting reference B8/ESUB of 24 February 2015.

Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
