Police are investigating CCTV footage of a "smartly dressed man" who spat at a Victoria Station worker before she died from coronavirus.

Belly Mujinga and a colleague were coughed on and spat at by a commuter claiming to have the deadly virus as they worked in the London hub - but the footage has yet to be released.

A recording of the man thought to be responsible has now been passed to police, who are probing the 47-year-old's death.

A witness told the Guardian that the man looked to be about 50 years old and was smartly dressed as he approached the staff on March 21.

They added: "The gentlemen looked like a lawyer or something. He asked us why we weren’t in the ticket office.

"He said: ‘you know I have the virus’. Then he spat and started coughing. We told our managers to call the police. I don’t know if they did.”

Ms Mujinga, who had underlying respiratory problems, quickly became ill and was put on a ventilator but died on April 5. 

Her daughter, Ingrid, 11, had a final video call from her mum before she became too unwell to talk at Barnet Hospital.

The rail worker's family have called for a murder charge to be brought after her death was reported to police on May 11, with Piers Morgan backing that.

He told her grieving family: "From everybody here we offer our deepest condolences to you and your family on this absolutely appalling - I would say tragedy - but it's worse than that.

"This seems to me to be a murder. This is somebody who said they had Covid-19 deliberately spitting at your cousin, infecting her and her colleague and your cousin is now dead."

Ms Mujinga’s employer, Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), said it has handed over a video of the incident to the British Transport Police.
