London Euston station was closed today after a 'serious assault' on a train left two people injured, including a railway worker. Armed police rushed to the major transport hub shortly after 7am following reports of an attack.

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, commented:

"This is a shocking incident and our entire TSSA union sends our thoughts and solidarity to those involved and their families.

"Though the full facts are yet to emerge, what happened serves as a reminder that violence on our rail network will never be tolerated. Sadly, workers on the frontline of our transport system all too often face threats to their wellbeing.

"It is worth remembering that they have been heroes throughout the pandemic and always deserve to be free to carry out their duties without fear."
