The Met said he would face no further action.

Media captionPutney Bridge: CCTV of jogger “pushing” woman in front of bus

Footage shows a man barging into the 33-year-old woman on Putney Bridge on 5 May.

Officers said the jogger ran the other way across the bridge about 15 minutes later and the victim attempted to speak to him, but “he did not acknowledge her”.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged in his 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

Two 41-year-old men were arrested in early August in connection with the assault. Both were subsequently released without further action.

Det Sgt Chris Griffith of the Met Police said his team was “continuing to investigate this incident and follow up leads”.
