Police are appealing for information after a rail worker was pushed onto the tracks at West Ham station.

The incident happened at around 2pm on Thursday, when the staff member, who was there as part of a revenue enforcement operation, approached a passenger to ask about his ticket.

An altercation on the Jubilee line platform followed, where the passenger barged the rail worker.

Both men fell onto the tracks, with the passenger then running off down the tracks.
