Police remove ticket dodger from train
11:43am Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
POLICE were sent to Bank Quay station following reports a man had refused to pay for a ticket.
Officers from British Transport Police escorted the 39-year-old man from the train at around 11.15am today, Thursday.
The Glasgow resident had been travelling on the London to Glasgow Virgin Trains service.
He was not arrested but will be have to pay a minmum fare of around £125.
However, the ticket dodger faces paying a much heavier fee as train ticket prices increase when bought on-board.
A spokesman for British Transport Police said: “Officers have been dealing with a man travelling without a ticket.
“A request had been made by the train manager to meet the train at Bank Quay station and remove him.
“The outstanding ticket will be dealt with by civil debt recovery ordered by Virgin.
“The man has now left the station.”
