Unfair game? Dead pheasants found
Two men arrested on suspicion of poaching
TWO men were taken to hospital following the evacuation of Bond Street tube station on Monday (November 14).
One man was hit by a train on the Jubilee line platform at the underground station, and a second man also treated following the incident.
British Transport Police (BTP) said they were called at 10.26am.
Officers attended the scene along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service (LAS) who rushed one man to hospital.
A second male was also taken to hospital for treatment following the incident, said BTP officers.
Bond Street tube station was evacuated and delays were experienced on the Jubilee line, in the aftermath of the incident. MEN from Hillingdon and Harefield have been arrested by police in Hertfordshire on suspicion of poaching pheasants.
The pair were picked up by officers on Wednesday, November 2 after a member of the public reported people acting suspiciously near Hitchin – 35 miles from Uxbridge.
A vehicle parked near the scene was found containing dead pheasants and was seized.
Inspector Duncan Sales, from Hertfordshire Constabulary, said: “We will not tolerate poaching in North Herts and will deal robustly with anyone committing this crime.
“To help us fight against poaching we rely on reports from members of the public.
“Therefore I would encourage anyone who witnesses people poaching or behaving suspiciously in the county’s rural areas to call us via the police non-emergency number 101.”
The 24-year-old man from Hillingdon and the 23-year-old man from Harefield have been released on bail to return to Hatfield Police Station on Thursday December 15.
