Court date for Tube ‘push’ Scot

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - News -

A Scot has ap­peared in court charged with the at­tempted mur­der of a Lon­don Un­der­ground pas­sen­ger who was al­legedly pushed into the path of a train.

The vic­tim was se­ri­ously in­jured when a Dis­trict Line train struck him at Bayswa­ter sta­tion dur­ing the evening rush hour on Thurs­day.

Alan Alen­car is al­leged to have shoved him in the back as the Tube train pulled into the cen­tral Lon­don sta­tion.

Mr Alen­car, 29, of Ed­in­burgh, was re­manded into cus­tody and ex­pected to ap­pear again in De­cem­ber.

The vic­tim, aged in his 50s, man­aged to crawl out from un­der­neath the car­riage and was taken to hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous but non-life threat­en­ing in­juries.
