A tube driver has averted a "potential tragedy" by rescuing a 12-year-old boy who had strayed onto tube tracks on the Bakerloo Line.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union says the child narrowly missed the 430-volt live rail, after jumping onto the tracks from a train that had pulled into sidings following its final passenger stop.
It's the third case in as many weeks of a child getting on to tracks on the Underground. Two weeks ago, an eight-year-old was led to safety by a cleaning contractor after being spotted on tracks near Stanmore. Last week a 12-year-old girl was hit by a tube train in Brixton.
