Man vaults over train station wall to flee police

This is the moment a middle-aged man vaulted over a train station wall in a failed bid to flee cops.

British Transport Police were called following reports that a man had hurt a security guard at Laindon railway station in Essex during yesterday evening's rush hour (THURSDAY).

Clambering onto a sign, the man - wearing a black t-shirt and jeans - managed to climb over onto the platform without appearing to pay for a ticket.

He then fixed his glasses as he jumped onto the train tracks and attempted to scarper.

But he was caught by police just a few minutes later.

This video was filmed 12th September 2019.
