A suspected burglar has perched in a tree overhanging a railway line for several hours causing major disruption for London commuters. He climbed the tree near Charlton station in south-east London in the early hours of this morning, and refused to come down throughout the morning rush hour.
So a bloke up a tree outside of Charlton station causing untold mayhem this morning. Just gone pass some police and a cherry picker
