He was also wearing grey or blue trousers, a light coloured shirt with blue stripes, a dark jacket and black shoes.

His death, which is not being treated as suspicious, was reported to British Transport Police around 10.40pm on Thursday, March 15 and a full report has been submitted to the local Procurator Fiscal.

Inspector Lynda Lang of British Transport Police said: “Despite our extensive enquiries we have not been able to identify the man.

“We have not been made aware of any missing people in the local area who fit the gentleman’s description and I am now hopeful that someone may recognise the jewellery and provide us with information that will allow us identify him and inform his family.”
