British Transport Police are appealing for help in identifying a man who pushed a trolley onto tracks at Euston. It happened at about 9pm on Tuesday 6th August. A train arrived soon afterwards, but luckily no significant damage was caused.
Inspector Tyrrell says: “We are unsure as to why the man deliberately pushed the trolley onto the tracks before walking away, which is why we are keen to trace him and speak to him about his dangerous actions.
"If the train had been travelling at speed, it could have caused serious damages to the tracks, train and anyone who may have been close by. The image of the man is clear – if you recognise him, I’d urge you to come forward.”
