Images of two men thought to have vital information in connection with two separate sexual assaults on a teenage girl have been released.

The 14-year-old was raped at Witton station in Birmingham between 20:00 BST on Tuesday and 02:00 BST on Wednesday.

She was then raped a second time after flagging down a vehicle when she left the station.

British Transport Police would like the men and anyone who saw them to get in touch.

Police said they now think a second man was present in the moments leading to the first attack. They also amended her age to 14, not 15 as earlier reported.

Two men approached the victim at the station at around 20:00 on Tuesday and led her to a secluded area of the station where she was raped by one of the men, officers said.

At around 02:00 on Wednesday the victim left the station in a disorientated state and was assaulted for a second time after flagging down a vehicle.

Police are now looking for three men in connection with the attacks.
