LU employee pushed onto tracks at Victoria Underground station

The British Transport Police (BTP) has released the image of someone they’d like to talk to in connection with an incident which resulted in a member of London Underground staff being pushed off a District line platform onto the tracks.

Shortly after 10am on 10 April, an LU staff member fell onto the tracks at Victoria Underground station after being pushed.

The employee didn’t sustain any injuries but was left shaken, BTP has said.

Rail union RMT said it was shocked and horrified by the incident.

Inspector Paula Jones said: “This was a very serious incident and we have a number of urgent enquiries underway to find the person responsible. I would like to hear from anyone who was at Victoria station at the time of the incident and saw what happened.

“Thankfully, incidents such as this are very rare and I am grateful the victim was not injured. We police a CCTV rich environment which helps us identify offenders and bring them before the courts.”

Anyone with information is being urged to contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference 146 of 10/04. Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
