Video: Altercation on Hucknall train


An altercation between a train guard and a passenger delayed a train and led to the guard being suspended after he lost his temper.

The incident happened on the Worksop to Nottingham train in Hucknall on Tuesday evening.

Traveller Ashley Elson recorded the dispute on his camera-phone and posted in on Youtube before sending it to East Midlands Trains’ facebook page.

Mr Elson commented on Youtube: “Guy had no ticket and delayed train because he wouldnt pay. Hero conductor made my evening!!!”

However, an East Midlands Trains spokeswoman confirmed the guard in the video had been suspended and an inquiry was underway.
