A ‘disruptive’ woman was removed from a train at Peterborough station then interviewed by police.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: “We were called to Peterborough railway station just after 12.20pm on Friday, 19 June, following a report of a disruptive passenger on board a train.

“BTP officers attended platform four at the station and removed a 36-year-old woman from a London King’s Cross to Edinburgh train.

“The woman voluntarily attended Peterborough BTP office and was interviewed under caution. She was subsequently released, pending further enquiries.”

Trains were delayed during the operation but all lines are now open again and trains are running as normal.

Tweets from Grand Central Rail and Cross Country Trains both said there was a security alert at Peterborough Station.

A spokesman for Virgin Trains East Coast said: “There was a passenger that caused a disturbance that needed police attention. One service was delayed for 15 minutes.”
