Man covers himself in baby oil on London tube

Staff writer

This is the bizarre moment a commuter strips off on the Tube and covers himself in baby oil - before dancing round a pole.

Onlookers say the man swung around the metal pole in the centre of the carriage and danced for four minutes.

In true British style, most of his fellow commuters continue to stare at their smartphones or look away while he slips and slides in the oil left on the floor.

One commuter said when the train came to a standstill at Bank, the semi-nude man simply got off and walked through rush hour crowds, covered in oil, in just his underwear.

The bizarre encounter happened at around 6.45am on November 12, on a DLR tube train heading towards Shadwell.
