A man caught allegedly snorting cocaine on the London Underground has been named as a former Tunbridge Wells schoolboy.

British Transport Police released an appeal for information after a city worker was caught on camera sniffing white powder off his hand on a Northern Line train.

In the video, filmed on June 5, the gentleman, named by The Sun newspaper as Tom Osborne, is heard saying he "just likes taking it".

The film was made by a shocked fellow passenger, to whom Mr Osborne appears to offer the drug.

The footage shows the 23-year-old supposedly rubbing the class A substance into his gums and offering it to other commuters before telling them he is "freaking out" after taking too much.

BTP today launched a probe into Mr Osborne's actions and posted a screenshot of the video online.

One witness told The Sun: “It was like something out of The Wolf of Wall Street, but on the Tube. This guy was just being an idiot.”

It's understood he fled in a taxi when approached by journalists from the newspaper earlier today.

His brother, who lives in the family's £1.5 million home in Tunbridge Wells, also refused to speak.
