Missing man's son: 'the doors closed, he was gone'

Ciprian Belea, the son of a man who's gone missing after becoming separated from him at Stockwell tube station, has told our Senior Correspondent Ronke Phillips what happened.

He said he had boarded a tube train but the doors had shut before his father had time to join him.

He said he made a gesture to tell his father to stay put, but he doesn't think he understood, because when he returned to the platform, he wasn't there.
