Chaos in Croydon – as it happened

Commuters at East Croydon were thrown into confusion when a drunken trespasser on the line meant platforms were closed for more than an hour.

Here are the best of the tweets:

  1. East Croydon is clear now. Still delays but no problem with the station other than its usual grimness.
  2. @SouthernRail say East #Croydon station is not closed but they are using crowd control measures to keep people safe
  3. East Croydon station is a disaster zone, not letting anyone down to the platforms. http://pic.twitter.com/GOeRuuuA
  4. #HonorOakPark suggest you all pop home for some crumpets and a cup of tea and wait for it to be fixed. Thats what I did.
  5. Hell on toast at East Croydon station. Due to “trespassers” on the line at Honor Oak. #biblical http://pic.twitter.com/1IYihZVE
  6. It appears that the incident at East Croydon is due to Eden Hazard kicking a train guard in the bollocks.
  7. Turfed of the train at East Croydon. It’s now survival of the fittest to actually get on a trai @ Platform 1 http://instagr.am/p/U3EsJiA1os/
  8. Still can’t get on to platform at East #Croydon. Only side gate open and allowing people through a few at a time
  9. Avoid east #croydon at all costs! They aren’t letting anyone on due to somebody getting on the tracks at #HonorOakPark bit.ly/10MhSR5
  10. RT @AidoLenno: Chaos at East #Croydon station. No outgoing passengers allowed through barriers, due to trespass on line to L Bridge http://twitpic.com/bxse95
