Officers found a knife in French’s waistband and two phones.
Jordan had also been found to be trespassing on the tracks at the station an hour previously.

He has been jailed for six months.
The second man stopped alongside French was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis, trespass and travel fraud.

PS Peter Wilcock, of British Transport Police, said:
“The Taskforce continues to be very active, and continues to crack down on violent crime and the trafficking of drugs on the railway network.
“My team pulled an 18-hour shift to secure the charge of French. Their significant efforts contribute to our national goal of ensuring the railway continues to be a very safe means of travel.”
