Police were called to Mottingham station last night following reports of two men attacking a passenger on a train bound for Dartford.

According to Southeastern Railway, the service suffered major delays due to "disruptive passengers" on-board" the train.

A spokesman for the British Transport Police confirmed that their officers were called shortly before 8:30pm to reports of two men who attempted to attack another man on the train stopped at Mottingham station.

However, the suspects fled the scene before officers arrived at the scene.

The line was eventually cleared shortly after 9:30PM after police conducted a search for both suspects.

Southeastern apologised for the inconvenience and enquiries are still ongoing.
