"Ticket barriers are sturdy and the man must have used significant force to break the hinges.
"The barrier had to be fixed, which cost over £500.
"Criminal damage such as this will not be tolerated on the rail network and we will do all we can to catch those responsible and bring them to justice.
"I would urge anyone who may recognise the man pictured to come forward and help this investigation."
