This is the moment a shocking mass brawl spilled onto a platform at Plaistow underground station.

The fight broke out in the early hours of Sunday morning (August 12) on a District Line train.

Officers believe the punch up was between two groups of men and a woman. They said that it started on the train just after midnight.

An eyewitness said on social media that the clash erupted after a passenger made a racist remark to an Asian man.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “It is not believed there were any serious injuries. Officers are making enquiries. No arrests have been made yet.”
