Man douses himself in “petrol” on Thameslink train

Disruption occurred earlier as a Thameslink train had to be evacuated after a man douses himself in a liquid and threatened to set himself alight.

 

Passengers were evacuated onto the trackside near Honor Oak station.

The main was detained.

Trains are now running again.
