A drunk man who challenged a foreign passenger for drinking beer on a train told him "abide by English laws or get out" in an astonishing rant.
The suited man, who appears to be in his 30s, admitted he had been drinking before boarding the train as he rowed with a passenger, who describes himself as a "Polish boy from Russia", sat next to him on a late-night service from London Liverpool Street to Romford last Thursday.
Extraordinary video, which was filmed by a witness, shows the man confronted the foreign national, who was filmed drinking from a beer bottle in full view of stunned travellers as a TfL Rail train stopped at Maryland.
In the footage, the man tells him that drinking alcohol is forbidden on the train and says the rules are displayed in the carriage.
Transport for London banned passengers from drinking from and carrying open containers of alcohol from its public transport services in June 2008 under then Mayor Boris Johnson.
