British Transport Police officers are attempting to trace a passer-by who helped save a woman’s life at Stratford station this afternoon.

A woman was spotted in distress on the Central line platform at around 3.10pm.

A member of the public helped a PCSO to guide her away from the track and persuaded her to leave the station.

She has since been taken to a place of safety to receive support and care.

Officers are keen to thank the woman who provided help, and said in a tweet: “Your actions this afternoon have helped to save a life.”
