A number of London-bound Southeastern trains are facing knock-on delays after police were called to deal with a disruptive passenger at Slade Green station earlier this morning.

Met officers, along with the British Transport Police, were called to the station shortly before 7am following reports of a man aggressively shouting at and alarming passers-by.

A Met spokeswoman said a man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of a public-order offence outside the footbridge of the station.

Reports on social media claimed a Taser was used, but a spokesman for BTP denied this.

Both forces said the incident was not being treated as terror-related and enquiries are ongoing.
