Train passengers using London Victoria station have been warned they may face disruption during Monday evening's (September 12) rush hour, as a police stand-off continues there.
British Transport Police (BTP) officers were called to the station just after 4am to reports of a vulnerable man in a precarious position at the top of an escalator.
Images later emerged of the man, wearing a red jumper, sitting on the rail at the top of the escalator , with his feet dangling above the concourse.
Specialist police negotiators have been speaking with the man throughout the day with the aim of bringing him to a place of safety.
While train services have been running without interruption, the routes of passengers through the station has been affected due to the area around the escalator being cordoned off.
BTP has warned that Monday evening's rush hour is likely to see more people flood into the station, and therefore increase disruption.
Superintendent Christopher Horton, said: "Our upmost priority is to ensure a safe resolution and our officers continue to engage with the man to achieve this.
"We’d like to thank the public for their patience during this incident.
"At present, there is no impact to train services however we are aware the station concourse may be busier during the peak periods.
"We advise you check with Southern and Southeastern trains before travelling."
