“I believe they will have information that could help our investigation. I know they boarded the train at Liverpool Street just after half-past midnight, getting off at Ilford shortly before 1am.
“This was the Thursday night and Friday morning before Christmas, so the train and Ilford station could have been full of party-goers on their way home who might have seen something.
“If they did, or recognise the men in the photos, please contact the British Transport Police.”
