UK POLICE HAVE launched a public appeal to help identify 20 bodies discovered on Britain’s rail network over the last 35 years.

None of the deceased is believed to have been the victim of foul play, and police are hoping that by releasing artist’s sketches they may locate relatives who can identify them.

Of 44 bodies found throughout England, Scotland and Wales, the police are releasing an artist’s impressions of 20 which were found in the London area.

The National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA), which is behind the project, is being cut as part of the government’s saving scheme.

The NPIA’s chief executive, said that the organisation was the centre of expertise for the police in cases of missing persons, of which there are about 1,000:

There are around 1,000 cases of unidentified bodies across the country, dating back more than 50 years. Behind every case will be a family or friend who perhaps wants to know what happened to their loved one or bring closure to a mystery.

The picture accompanying this article is one of the 20 artist’s sketches of rail victims.

The police have released the following details: He is a man struck by a train at Mile End Tube station, London on 08/05/1975.  He is white, 45-50 years old, approximately 6’0’’ with black, receding hair and false teeth.

He was wearing a navy blue blazer with yellow metal embossed buttons, a light blue shirt, blue trousers and black leather shoes (size 7).  He also had a metal wristwatch engraved “Tudor Oyster”.

POLICE IN THE UK have apologised to a 14-year-old girl and her family after accidentally electrocuting her with a Taser. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has launched an investigation into the incident.

Police say an officer was attempting to subdue a 20-year-old man on a street in Stapleford, Nottingham, who had become aggressive with an officer. The officer threatened to use his Taser, if he didn’t stand still.

However, he missed his mark and instead struck Jodie Gallagher who was standing nearby. The weapon can fire a shock of 50,000 volts.

Jodie said she was stunned by the Taser, and was taken home by her sister to be examined by a doctor. She was not injured in the attack.

West Yorkshire police have been criticised for using a Taser on gunman Raoul Moat before he killed himself last month. An investigation into that incident is also underway.

Here’s a Taser in action:
