Det Cons Vicki Bladen, the investigating officer, said: “The victim, a 37-year-old woman, was waiting at a restaurant in the station around 8.50pm with her husband, when she felt a man, who was part of a larger group of men, had touched her inappropriately.
“The woman confronted the man and managed to take an image on a mobile phone.”
Officers launched an investigation and, after viewing CCTV from the area, have released an image of a man they want to speak to.
