Detectives have released a further image of the 'Putney Pusher' whose mindless aggression almost killed a woman in May.

The latest image is a CCTV still from the bus which swerved to dodge the woman after she was knocked into the road on Putney Bridge by a male jogger on May 5.

The bus avoided hitting the 33-year-old woman by a matter of inches, thanks to the rapid reactions of its driver, who spoke to talkRADIO yesterday.

Two men were arrested over the incident in August after the original CCTV footage was released, sparking national attention. However both have now been released.

The jogger is described as a white male, aged in his 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair. He was wearing a light grey T-shirt, dark blue shorts with grey trainers.

Officers continue to appeal for witnesses to the incident or anyone who recognises the jogger pictured on CCTV to get in touch.

Detective Sergeant Chris Griffith of Wandsworth CID said: "Images of this alarming incident have been circulated widely and we continue to work through the information received to identify the man responsible.

"We are grateful to those who have assisted so far. However, I am also appealing for anyone who has given just a name to contact police or Crimestoppers again with as much information as possible so we can fully follow up those lines of enquiry."

Anyone with information should call detectives from Wandsworth CID on 020 3276 2606 or via 101, or tweet @MetCC.

Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
