Officers from British Transport Police are appealing for witnesses after a fight erupted on a Jubilee Line train.

Two men began attacking each other aboard a westbound Jubilee Line train just after 7am on Monday, October 31. The emergency cord was pulled and when the train pulled into Canary Wharf, officers apprehended them.

A 47-year-old from Leyton and a 29-year-old from Barking have been arrested and were released on police bail to return at a later date.
