Detectives in London are still looking for a woman who was filmed having sex in broad daylight on a platform at Hackney Downs station.

Horrified passengers on the London Overground witnessed the couple engaging in intercourse at 7am on 26 August, with a video of the amorous pair going viral on social media.

Witnesses were outraged by the man and women with one overheard in a video saying "yous two are f***ing disgusting!" Another commentator said the suspects "shagged the place down".

"Would you believe it, two people were just shagging the place down on the platform, you know what I mean.

"What time is it now... 7.16am. They're at it like rabbits, then they jump on the train afterwards. It's early in the morning on the platform at Hackney Downs.

"I'm not joking man. Today's Saturday the 26th. And they shagged the place down. Crazy."

A 23-year-old man from Walthamstow has been charged with one count of outraging public decency and is due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on 9 October.

British Transport Police are still hunting for a ginger-haired woman in relation to the crime and have released an image of her face.
