TRANSPORT police are hunting three men after a rail passenger's luggage was stolen.

Officers have released these CCTV images in a bid to track down a group they believe have information over the October 21 incident.

A bag was stolen from a luggage rack between Birmingham and Coventry on a London Euston-bound train. It was later found empty near to Coventry station.

The female victim had left the bag on a rack at the end of the carriage only to discover it was gone when finishing her journey in the capital.

Investigating officer, Special Constable Colin Steele, said: "The bag was found the following morning in a car park the following morning near to Coventry station with its contents missing.

"Enquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible and, after reviewing CCTV footage from the train, I would now like to speak to the men in these photographs in relation to the incident as I believe they will have key information."
