A railway worker suspended after helping to rescue a wheelchair-bound pensioner who fell onto the tracks at Southend Central station has been reinstated.
The RMT rail workers' union said the customer services assistant, who works for c2c, will now return to work.
He faced a disciplinary hearing after it was suggested he may have broken health and safety rules.
The man was helped by three members of the public after a 71-year-old woman fell onto the tracks.
Following the hearing, RMT general secretary Bob Crow called the decision a "victory for common sense".
A spokesman for the rail operator said: "A c2c employee has returned to full duties following our investigation into the incident at Southend Central station."
