ACC Sean O’Callaghan from British Transport Police, said: “Friday evening's incident was extremely challenging and I would like to thank the public for their patience whilst a number of specialist teams responded.

“This was a fast paced inquiry and I am pleased that a man has now been charged in connection.”
