PC Suleman Yazdani of BTP's Sexual Offences Unit, said: "As the woman walked up the stairs to exit the station (at about 9am) she was tapped on the shoulder by another commuter.

"She was informed that a man walking behind her had been seen using his phone to take inappropriate film of her. The witness confronted the man but he walked off.

"Unsurprisingly, the woman was extremely upset and reported the incident to station staff immediately."

Officers from BTP have since examined CCTV footage from the station, in Chiswick High Road, and identified the man pictured, who they believe can help with their inquiries.
